    I'm now convinced that I have some mental illnesses from my childhood.

    I enjoyed the article, and got a third of the way through the book until the Waldorfian mindset overwhelmed me. The little voice in my head kept saying "hes part of the cult, the cult, the cult.... they tell kids there are gnomes that live in the copy machine, they dont allow use of certain colors before certain ages..."

    He doesnt really go into the "no television, no radio, only live performances" aspects of the cult, either.

    Im all for simplifying and getting rid of extra crap we dont use, and know that a good portion of our toys could go away and not be missed. I disagree a bit though that our kids need to be isolated from the rest of the world. No, they dont need to contemplate moving to Canada based on the election results, or lose sleep over global warming or the current drought.... but a little honesty about whats going on does more good thsn hsrm, I think. "We dont leave the faucet running for the cat to drink from.... because there is a drought."

    I agree AM. I just recently got the book and there is a little too much woo for me in it. I'm glad I didn't buy it.

    Oh no what a bummer.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at

    Poor Tech is SOL. he's got my genes so odds are not good for him not developing BPD, and we apparently do his childhood completely wrong.
