Absolutely spectacular. Back to basics parenting. I used this book to help me "unlearn" all that we are told in the realm of parenting. Rahima's book helped me tap into my original parenting instincts. I love this book.

If only the Waldorf-related books could leave out the Waldorf "spiritual" stuff. It doesn't even add to the substance -- it's just pseudo-interpretive stuff layered on top that basically gets in the way.

This book had a lot of interesting theories. Waldorf is maddening though - it seems like a method/school of thought that has such potential, and that I would love to explore further, yet it is probably easier to find books on ancient Greek than on Waldorf philosophy and homeschooling, PARTICULARLY

after the age of 6. I'm not sure why, exactly, Waldorf theorists would rather you only buy your books from a few expensive sources, and why there really isn't any material available in the public library, even by interlibrary loan. It is too, too bad. I would really love to learn more about it. I appreciate the seasonality, and the emphasis on crafts, on the connections that we, as people, have to our past, and our heritage, and the world around us. I feel like it DOES make for a more well-rounded person.
