This book is done in a question and answer format compiled from threads on the Christopherus Waldorf At Home Forum that will be closing in June. It preserves the privacy of the forum participants but maintains the warmth and love of those forum members and lets readers hear different voices, different ideas, along with lots of commentary from Donna Simmons in her warm and well-versed in Waldorf parenting way.
I have contributed some developmental pieces for sections, and also contributed my voice as a moderator for some of the threads.
I am so pleased, and I think you all will be as well.
