    Parents of toddlers: Peaceful ways to deal with specific situations

    Many of the folks who aren’t familiar with peaceful parenting would probably like to see real world examples, and parents who have already adopted the ideas would probably love to hear other parents’ ideas and methods for dealing with specific situations.   Let’s add some discussion of practice to the great discussions surrounding theory that are already ongoing.   I think it would be really constructive for a discussion to start like this: My kid is doing X. Do you guys have ideas or solutions for dealing with it?   I’ll get as much use out of this type of conversation as anyone, since my son is 2.5 and my daughter is seven weeks. So I’d love to see some posts!

    Homeschoolers/ Unschoolers: How can serve you?

    I was homeschooled up until the 11th grade when it became necessary for my family to send me to a private school primarily because my father was worried he was not equipped to get whatever paperwork together to ensure I could get into a good college straight out of homeschool. The plan worked pretty well and I was able to attend the college of my choice. But the cost was high. I absolutely hated the standardized classroom of private school(I didn’t like college’s standardization levels much either but college was still fun). But my experience led me to want to make sure other students in similar situations would not be forced to go to a private or public school just to smooth the path to college if that is their desired outcome. To that end, how can this community help you, the homeschooling parent, the homeschooled student(who may still have friends or siblings), reach your educational goals? Any information, from the most grandiose abstract, to the most tediously specific, would be of great help. Except for corrections of my grammar, those belong on hate-filled screeds at the NYT.
