In Which HSLDA Conducts a Child Abuse “Investigation”

HSLDA logo

I recently came upon something posted on HSLDA's site some years ago that I found interesting, in light of what I have written about HSLDA in the past. HSLDA releases stories of the cases it handles in various states, partly to keep its members apprised of what it does and partly to encourage people to stay members. Anyway, this incident happened in Kentucky. Here is how it starts: Coming home at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday this summer, the Wall family were puzzled to see a sheriff's car and another … [Read more...]

TTUAC: The “Magic Wand”

Paddle

To Train Up A Child, chapter 5, part 5This week we finish chapter 5, "The Rod." If you've read nothing else of this series of reviews, read this section. This section gives a great deal of insight into how Michael views the rod, and what he alternately calls "spankings" and "whippings." We've noted previously that Michael continually tells parents to spank, hit, and otherwise beat their children, seemingly unaware of any other tools a parent might use to correct or guide a child. In the … [Read more...]

Sally and Me

mother daughter

As I watched Sally at her preschool's winter program recently, something struck me in the gut, hard. Sally's upbringing will be so different from mine that it will in some ways be like we are from different cultures. I have talked before about growing up in the Christian homeschooling subculture being like being raised as a "third culture kid."

CTBHHM: Sex, Charles, and Lesbians

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 196This week we continue with Debi's questions not to ask your husband. 7. Do you ever think of just loving me in the spiritual way instead of always the carnal? I am so hungry for some deep spiritual understanding and communication.Something deep inside him is so dissatisfied, so frustrated that she responds intimately only when she feels right about it. It speaks nothing of his manhood. His soul is sick all the way to its core. He falls asle … [Read more...]
