Airing Dirty Laundry: Lessons Learned

I’ve been thinking about my maternal grandma a lot over the last couple of days. I don’t know why, but I’m always influenced by my thoughts. She’s alive and well, last I heard, and the phrase, “Don’t air your dirty laundry,” comes to mind every time I think of her. She was a fan of […]

The Educational Spectrum–VIDEO

When explaining the core differences between various types of education, I wanted a physical representation of them. I wanted to show how they related to each other, so that it would be visually easy to decide what type would work for different families.

Are writers more compassionate parents? 20 IDEAS TO HAVE PEACEFUL NIGHTS WITH CHILDREN

As I discuss characters and their unchangeable traits with other authors, I’m often surprised at how much these people believe that their character “has a right to be his/her own self without interference from others”. To me, this is the heart of good parenting. Our children are born to us as complete and whole humans […]

I will never embarrass you on purpose

I recently heard a mother of a young girl openly announce to the world that she was going to be spending time alone with the daughter and her daughter’s friends, and it was her intention to embarrass the girl as much as possible and in as many ways as possible. She was actually going to […]

Our interview with KGUN9 about Radical Unschooling

On Friday, July 16th, Jennifer Waddell and her cameraman Jimmy came to my family’s house to interview us about our Radical Unschooling lifestyle.
