Thanks for your reply! I guess I was thinking not so much about the school
meetings, JC, rules, etc, as I was thinking about the reason a DSM school
has these things...the basic premise of respecting the child as an
individual and not coercing them. This is why I asked: how does this play
out in family life for families that have children attending schools based
on this model?
