LINDA BEAULIEU | UNSCHOOL-CA GROUP MEMBER
Linda, not only do you have a fabulous name but your observations, comments and criticisms are extremely insightful.
Just starting out on the journey with a five year old who everyone tells me "will be starting school in the fall". I feel like not exposing my children to the system at all is the best thing for them to grow to be themselves.
In any case, thank you for teaching me to be the bitch in the room. You blog posts are fascinating and incredibly helpful.
ATTACHMENT PARENTING FOR ALL AGES | facebook group
A closed group for parents looking for support, encouragement and information about attachment-style parenting, with about 2000 members. The screenshot is one of a large collection of images in which parents have commented with accolades for Linda's comments, advice, opinions and support.
From marriage proposals and president of the universe nominations to invitations to come and live at their house for a couple of decades to help them be better at this, members of this list (some of whom have dubbed Linda 'the Oracle') claim she has changed their lives, saved their families, and rescued their children, while making everything simpler and easier and often far more lighthearted in the process.
Linda is also 'the Empress of our utopian AP island called Clementia'...according to group founder, Mary Saynuk Monroe.

Some of your insights are so profound. Are you like a trained something or other? What books have you read?
What you said about order and security I can identify with in my own life. I have managed much of my adult life from a structured, ordered mindset, which “works” when it works. But then we re-ordered our life, moved (a lot), started self-employed, etc. and I found my ordering didn’t soothe me as much any more. What I needed to do was get to the root, which were/are some deep insecurities. Thankfully, we have a strong family life (and I don’t have a history of unattachment or disordered attachment, etc), we seek always to support each other and so my family has weathered this with me and helped me come to the conclusions you talk about, but not in the language you express. In fact, you’ve just given words to a change and a transformation in myself that I haven’t quite been able to express or explain. Still more work to do but instead of trying to order my life to that point I keep seeing that the deep well is where the change must occur and any surface structuring is just that. So thank you.
