RE: [Discuss-sudbury-model] How do you apply Sudbury model to early childhood education?

Hi Allison,

yes this is definately possible, it is because of the way I am with my
daugther that I came to Sudbury.
You might want to read Deborah Jackson (the former title was 'do not
disturb', but is has been edited recently and I know the title is now
differen). Also books by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish ('how to talk so kids
will listen and listen so kids will talk', 'liberated children, liberated
parents') fit into the train of thought.

There is an active list about 'the continuum concept' from Jean Liedloff
(check out, which I learned heaps from. Very wise
people on that list!

  Hi Everyone!

  My name is Allison Tiffany-Goldstein, and I’m new to your discussion list.
I discovered Sudbury while researching alternative education on the
Internet. I have a six month old baby girl, and I would like to know how I
can apply the Sudbury model to early childhood education. Can it be used in
educating your infant?

  My background is as follows…

    a.. Born and raised in New Jersey.
    b.. Mother was a public school teacher.
    c.. Attended public schools as a child. Graduated from high school in
    d.. B.S. in Secondary Education from public university.
    e.. J.D. from private college.
    f.. Enjoyed school and learning until 7th grade. Disliked school and
learning from 7th grade until senior year in college. Fell in love with
school and learning my senior year in college. Loved “learning” in law
school but strongly disliked the “boot camp” atmosphere of the law school
    g.. I’m a stay home mom and live in Phoenix.

  I realized late in life that learning IS fun! There’s just a lot of
teachers and school systems that make it awful. I want my daughter to have
a positive experience. Any advice?

  Thank you in advance…
