My name is Stacie and I'm relatively new here. I've been lurking, after reading and falling in love with Sandra Dodd's Big Book of Unschooling.
I am not yet a radical unschooler, not entirely sure if I ever will be, but I do have a lot of respect for those who do. I am really working on letting go of many things. This is our 4th year homeschooling, and we have always been relaxed homeschoolers, with a brief 2 week disaster with "school-at-home."
Anyway....my son is 11, and he has no desire to eat fruits and veggies. I have been strongly encouraging him too, and sometimes flat out asking him to eat some. He has trouble with constipation, and we both know he needs to eat more fiber. But I don't like telling him what to eat. It just doesn't feel right. On the other hand, I want him to be healthy.
