Read in October, 2007

I have been curious about Waldorf education and wanted to get a flavor for it without going directly to the Rudolf Steiner primary writings. I learned that a lot of the philosophy is similar to what I already do, I'm just not as extremist about it. I have two renewed goals after reading this book, (1) instead of purposely doing chores when the children are otherwise occupied, to do them with or at least in front of the kids, so that they can either "help" me or at least learn to respect letting me do my work, and (2) removing some automation from my life. For example, spreading dough, grating cheese, and assembling pizza togeher is much more fun and rewarding than grabbing one from the freezer or (gasp) ordering one.
