It's hard to think of a safer time to raise kids. So why are parents always freaking out — or being needlessly policed?

Bay State Learning Center -- Don't Let School Hold You Back!

I am proud to serve on the Board of this amazing self-directed learning center for teens. Check out this year's crowdfunding campaign video for footage of student members and staff talking about their experiences. Our fall campaign to raise funds for programs and scholarships has just launched! https://www.incited.org/en/projects/11321-Bay-State-Learning-Center-Programming-Fundraiser-2014-15

Anyone recognize this character? I feel like it's from a pulp film, but I'm not coming up with specifics. (Seen in Julian's in Providence, RI, where there were also a live feed of Tron 2 and Pez dispenser and Star Wars action figure collections in the bathroom. Oh, and when I came in, they were playing Jethro Tull, one of the servers was wearing a "Cthulhu Fhtagn" t-shirt, and I could see the fnords. My kind of place. Oh, and they had food that was on my diet...!

I am recruiting Board members for a self-directed learning center (school alternative for students aged 10-19). Do good, learn a lot, create more options for students who don't succeed in traditional schools!

Bay State Learning Center, a self-directed learning center for students aged 10-19 located in Dedham, MA, is recruiting volunteers to serve on their Board of Trustees. At BSLC, each student has the opportunity to work with a mentor to design a specialized learning program to fit his or her own needs, strengths, and interests. In addition to personalized support and a regular schedule of optional classes, BSLC provides a safe, comfortable environment where students can work, socialize, and thrive free of the coercion and pressure of traditional school.

BSLC is particularly seeking Board members with the following skill sets:

- finance/accounting
- law
- fundraising
- nonprofit growth strategy
- marketing

We also welcome interest from anyone seeking to gain volunteer experience with self-directed education. Potential Board members must be available to attend a monthly Board meeting in person or via conference call.

For more information: http://www.baystatelearning.org/

If you are interested in applying to join the BSLC Board, please mail a short letter of interest to board@baystatelearning.org.

I would love to see other presentations by children and adolescents at Pagan events! This one was given at Paganicon.

AUSTINITES: This one happened in your town. CPS investigated a family who were allowing their kids to play outside and closed the investigation by telling them not to allow that anymore. If this outrages you, pass the link on and consider writing a letter to your local paper or representative. This is a violation of our right as parents to raise our children with the values we hold. #AustinTX #parenting
Cops think letting a kid play outside, within view of the house, is a crime.

Sadly, while Austin's CPS division was investigating this family, they were neglecting to investigate the parents of Colton Turner, who eventually abused him to death. Great job, CPS!

CALL FOR PAPERS: Pagan Consent Culture: Building Communities of Empathy and Autonomy. This collection will define Pagan consent culture; articulate widely-held Pagan theologies of the body; examine theological resources in various Pagan traditions for building consent culture; explore strategies for making seeking consent to touch a normal community practice; give recommendations for safeguarding policies at events for children and adults; provide procedures for communities to use when responding to accusations of sexual abuse; consider the role of unequal power dynamics in relationships in Pagan communities; and examine the ethics of sexual initiation, erotic healing, and other Pagan religious practices involving the ritual use of touch. #PaganConsentCulture   #Pagan  #consent

This is the awesome 1 bd condo Matt and I lived in before Mr. Urp was born. It's great for a single person or couple - everything's fairly new, not much maintenance to be done (not like our current place, omg). It's best for someone who either has a car or works in or near Roxbury - and priced very inexpensively for something in the middle of Boston. Please pass it on if you know anyone looking to buy!
