Are you there yet?

The words are Joyce Fetteroll's, quoted yesterday by Robin Bentley, and I lifted them because they're good:
If there is one thought that will help you understand unschooling and respectful parenting it is this:

      The primary goal is joyful living.
      All other goals are secondary.
All decent parents, of course, want their children to be happy. But they assume that sometimes happiness needs to be sacrificed to get something better.

But for unschooling, peaceful parents meeting any goal must also meet the goal of living life more joyfully.
