New Articles on the Website
Announcing three new articles posted to the Christopherus website Articles section:
Fool’s Gold is the summary of the Alliance for Childhood’s extensive report on children and computers. You’ll find the summary here and the original 99-page report can be found at the Alliance’s website.
We have another two articles from the British Waldorf journal Steiner Education (formerly Child and Man). We are very pleased to have been given permission to reprint articles from this journal. Anyone interested in subscribing to Steiner Education can see here for details.
Environmentally Friendly has a slightly misleading title: it is a short piece written by a teacher at the Waldorf school in Nairobi, Kenya (Liz Braun) containing an example of a lower grades nature story.
Sleep – From A Parent’s Point of View is an excellent article on the significance of sleep for our children. The last words are:
When we hear Waldorf teachers saying that education only really happens in
sleep, we as parents must surely feel some sense of responsibility and play our
part in this total education of our children. They need our love and care in
sleeping as well as in their waking and day-dreaming lives.
We hope you find these articles interesting and useful!
