It seems I’m a bit behind in the times. Several of my Natural Parenting articles have been published lately – shows how much I’ve been checking the Essence of Life website where I work since I stopped managing the forum there.
So, there’s an extended version of my post on Children learning when they’re ready HERE
And an article on the Unrestricted Diet part of Radical Unschooling, which I allude to frequently. You can read the full article HERE
It’s basically talking about the idea that if we trust children to eat what they feel (as we do as adults), then they will be confident to trust their bodies and be healthy naturally. If we put a lot of restrictions on them, we’re showing children that they can’t be trusted to know their own bodies and make healthy choices.
