Motherlode: More Screen Time? Homeschooling Anarchists? Good Teachers When Kids Fail.

On Motherlode at the end of this week: I was thinking that my idea to allow kids more “screen time” on the computer if they were doing creative things instead of just playing, as one commenter said, addictinggames.com was a good one–but most people are still arguing for full limits or none.

And what I liked best about the New York Times Magazine’s “Homeschooling Anarchist Parents” article this week was the mother’s unabashed embracing of a parenting style I thought her daughter was pretty critical of–but commenters didn’t see it that way, either.

I think everyone should read What Good Teachers Do When Kids Fail (but I’m only partially responsible for that one).

I’ll be back for more next week. The permanent disposition of Motherlode, though, remains in the air.
