Max, how many years did you teach at a Waldorf School and where? I think this is a fantastic list, and I may even be tempted by a few, but as a Waldorf parent I just can't do it... there is someone on this thread who said they only took what worked from Waldorf and lived their family life as they best saw fit, and that included television. I might have said the same a few years ago, but now I clearly understand that if just ONE (young) child in a Waldorf setting sees TV, s/he is going to talk about characters seen on TV, and that really just ruins the balance for the rest of the children, not to mention the tremendous emotional and financial investment for the parent. I truly understand that this form of education is not for everyone, but if you can't imagine your child without television, then please send him/her to another school and don't ruin it for the children/parents who do. We don't judge, and we only expect the same in return.
Again, great list of films, and I will print out and recommend to mothers of families that do have a more relaxed attitude about media in their homes.

I must say, this is one of the dumbest - no, THE dumbest - article I've seen on AT. Perhaps if this were meant for the off-campus college crowd, maybe... but still off key. If you can't get your "odd schedule" together -as an adult - then just stay/go home.
