Intentionally and carefully

For clarity of thought and for value of discussions about unschooling (or anything), it's important to use words  photo DSC09531.jpg intentionally and carefully. If a parent can't tell the difference between "consequences" and "punishment" and doesn't want to even try to, she'll probably keep punishing her children and telling herself it's not punishment, it's consequences. That muddled thinking can't lead to clarity nor to better parenting.
