What I would add to Jessie's wonderful account is that you don't always need rules to make changes. Just a discussion of how people feel is often enough. For example, kids in meetings. It was hard for parents of little kids to understand that people without little kids have a hard time tuning them out. A crying baby to a parent is a crying baby. A crying baby to someone who has never been a parent is an emergency and very distracting. We didn't need a rule to address this, we just needed parents to be more aware. And we worked harder to provide child care during meetings. Sharon ---- Sharon Villines Takoma Village Cohousing http://www.takomavillage.org
