A libertarian leaning, common preference seeking, pro-science, pro-critical rationalism, humanist blog, which is mainly, but by no means exclusively, about home educating in the UK.
There's a programme on Channel 5 tonight, too. 9 or 10.
that home educator is in the programme.
Is she? I so hope it's a positive programme!
The previews have been rather worrying: it links AP as if almost inevitably, with a hippie life-style and with some degree of squalor, by the sounds of it. I personally came by AP through reading the works of John Bowlby (a child psych, I think and not a hippie). We managed the extended bfing, co-sleeping, slings, usually responsive style parenting (at least for second child)and a slightly relaxed attitude towards housekeeping, without lapsing into squalor...well, serious squalor anyway....errr...supper table completely covered in cardboard and paint as I write, but ummm...And we certainly didn't attempt a hippie-lifestyle in other regards. I personally feel AP makes sense whatever your other views on the world.
After seeing the prog, I don't think the preview really gave the right impression! Not hippie at all.
