It’s been a while since I’ve provided any sort of status update for the OGrownups list, which I co-manage with my pal C. August. The list started up back in early August, and is one of Diana Hsie'h’s Olists, which are specialized email discussion lists for Objectivists.
From the homepage:
OGrownups is an informal mailing list for Objectivists interested in raising and educating children well. Its basic purpose is to facilitate discussion about child development, discipline techniques, education methods, parenting resources, and more.
Any Objectivist interested in polite and practical discussion about raising and educating children rationally may participate in OGrownups -- including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, caregivers, and friends. Any Objectivist considering parenthood is also welcome to subscribe and post. Moreover, non-Objectivists are welcome to subscribe to the list, but only as lurkers; they cannot post.
As of this writing, we have 183 members! Recent discussion topics have included: childbirth options, choosing a homeschooling curriculum, discipline issues, nutritional issues, holiday traditions, and much more.
To apply for membership to our list, click here and fill out the form. Be sure to answer both membership questions, and indicate if you would like to lurk or post.
