education

Feminism, Go Home! You’re Drunk. . .

I have never encountered a dress code that only set out standards for one sex. They are written for both sexes.

A proper, respectful  environment is an education in itself! The environment reflects and encourages certain ideals.

What you wear changes behavior. Both the way you behave and the way you are treated. It is not insignificant it is part of a good education.

What girls and boys can learn from dress codes:

Principles

Dignity

Modesty

Respect

Obedience

These might be the best lesson they learn all year.

Unschooling

    “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire” W.B. Yeats.

  My oldest is almost 6, the age of formal schooling, and suddenly charts, stickers, schedules, assignments, tests and deadlines are deemed necessary for learning. The more I think about school, the more I find myself leaning towards this idea of unschooling . . .
