It's not about structured education, it's about saying YES to their ideas. 
Raising science-loving kids doesn't mean pricey STEM toys and classes. It has to do with saying "yes." Here's how it works.

  2:37 a.m. Weary of wakeful child I rock against his reluctance. Soft songs don’t lull. Warm milk doesn’t lure. It’s possible to adore yet wish him unconscious.   A soft hand pats my face, pulls my lip. He stands on my lap reaching for window-framed moonlight. The sight of his round-cheeked beauty pours sudden …

Un-cliché your Valentine's Day. Create a heart out of something unexpected, commit anonymous good deeds, or try any of our other out-of-the-ordinary ideas.

“Oh no!  If you fell, these straws could get stuck in your nose!”

Unconcerned, he countered, “I like to put things up my nose.”

“You do? What things do you put in your nose?”

“I put food in my nose all the time.
I don’t buy straws. Yeah, I’m cheap, but I prefer to believe I’m making an ethical stand. Straws have one purpose: to spare us the workout of lifting a drink to our lips while tilting the glass slightly. Each of these miniature plastic pipes are used for a few minutes, then discarded to burden the environment for decades. …

Introduction

Relentless optimist, book addict, awe junkie.  

I'm the author of Free Range Learning, a handbook of natural learning, and a collection of poetry titled TendingMy upcoming book is titled Subversive Cooking. I write and serve as editor for a number of periodicals, print and online.  

My background includes teaching non-violence workshops, writing poetry with nursing home residents, facilitating support groups, and developing community enrichment workshops. 

These days I mostly edit books, write, and do other hermit-y things. My poetry has won several minor awards, the most notable a third grade prize from Miss Barker (which included a chocolate bar.) 

I live on a small farm with my family where we raise bees, cows, chickens, produce, and the occasional hair-brained scheme.
