My 11yo's little screen has become obsolete, so at the moment I see a lot of activity, or watching DVDs of old TV shows (which the whole family enjoys, actually). When we replace it (and we will)...

I'm just loving this part of my child-led homeschooling essay. PM me if you want a link to the rest of it:

My kids are begging for homework. Seriously. Whether we go to school or not this year, I feel like I've let them down if I don't come up with something for them. My 11yo wants 6th grade work...

What's wrong with being selfish? Of course there are other reasons to consider. There is never a "reason" to have a child, and never a "reason" to not have one. You don't need one for either. ...

I don't think you should have to justify *wanting* to have a child. Pardon the language, but fuck that. Why would someone want a cat? They decimate the bird population, they use the world's...
