I have yet to meet any children (under the age of say 12) that will have any interest in long, boring adult meetings. Any meeting at Sharingwood is open to any child to attend, and as far as I can recall only very rarely has any kid ever chosen to do so. So you can ask them to be part of the meeting if you want, but I suspect they would rather play. I know I would.

(I'm sure that this has been discussed before but I failed to find a corresponding thread.) We expect to be selecting land in a matter of weeks, and then starting an ambitious year of development and marketing (construction to begin in a year?) The issue is whether/how children should be included in our "business meetings" during that period of time. We usually meet on a weekly basis, sharing potluck during the first hour and then investing the next two hours in business. Nearby childcare is being provided. We differ on whether/how children should be included in the business portion of our time together. Some of us really want to be focused while we deal with substantial (expensive, and difficult) issues, and don't want to be distracted during this time. Some of us don't want to exclude our children completely, and would like to include them somehow in this very important aspect of what we are doing as a community. Are there lessons learned? Keep in mind that we are taking on an aggressive schedule, and will need to accomplish a lot in a short period of time. Thanks. Dave Busse Equinox Cohousing Group Eastside Seattle (In Land Search)
