Montessori can be kind of "hippie" (in a good way IMO), as there is extensive focus on the Earth. Does your local one have a farm, garden, or woods for exploration?

Many have an international...

Montessori is awesome for pre-school through 3rd grade. On this site, you can find whisper and I giving positive reviews. But it is a totally hands-on model, very different than a "traditional"...

I like BC's approach too.

I have also had the thought to pay people to not cut my hair.

Billy just sneezed in his mask. It's OK, that's why we asked every student to drop off 100 masks at the start of school. Since we pool all of our supplies together since not everyone can afford...

It's not that kids can't adapt. It's more of an American society kind of thing. The eventual parental protests against children wearing masks. What kind of masks? Kids having a false sense of...

Even when schools make an announcement, it can all suddenly change. I am having trouble seeing children at US schools wearing masks. MAYBE starting at a certain age, but I just don't see it happening.

I agree that cities will be different. Patients will need to be spaced out more and fewer patients seen per day in order to prevent crowding of waiting areas. You will also need compliance from the...

Regardless of what you want to do, you should be prepared to homeschool. Don't reinvent the wheel: find an already existing curriculum and people who already do this. Homeschooling (effectively)...

Many doctors' offices were closed. But one does not need to hang out. Every doctor I know has a "wait in parking lot to be called" policy. Hell, I was doing this at the pediatrician's office for...
