Quoting Quiverfull: Is Homeschooling the Answer to Temper Tantrums?

by Tracy Ventola from Ladies Against Feminism and Alternatives to School (Kerry McDonald) - Why We're Not Going Back to School in the FallFrom Ladies Against Feminism: Last fall, we quit formal schooling. We stopped dragging our seven-year-old daughter—kicking and screaming—out of bed each morning. We no longer held our breath each afternoon as we drove up the school’s driveway, where the teacher would hand us a physically, emotionally, and spiritually depleted child. A child who held it together all day at school and unraveled as soon as she entered the sanctity of our minivan. That unraveling would take the form of tantrums—screaming, hitting, kicking, and punching at home. Somehow we’ … [Read more...]

Homeschool Sex Machine by Matthew Pierce

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground I recently read Homeschool Sex Machine: Babies, Bible Quiz, and the Clinton Years. Written by Matthew Pierce, a homeschool alumni who is preparing to homeschool his own children, this short book is one man’s memory of the more insaner aspects of the conservative Christian homeschool movement. When Matthew first emailed me about his book, I knew this was a book I should read. I am glad I did. Homeschool Sex Machine is short, well-written, and funny. I say funny. Some of the remarks Matthew heard from the adults in the homeschool or fundamentalist Christian is not really funny. But Matthew managed to pull it off where I could laugh at … [Read more...]

From Ladies Against Feminism -  Stop the War on Boys in Classrooms - Homeschool Boys have little patience for wasting their lives putting in their time and working counter-intuitively to their calling and purpose.

Quoting Quiverfull: How Not to be a Homeschooling Hypocrite?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - Hypocrisy in the Homeschool Ranks? Why would homeschoolers, conservative Christians, be singled out as perpetrators of hypocrisy? He who advertises his goals, brags about his achievements, and recommends his practices becomes a subject of scrutiny and acquires a thousand volunteer referees to throw down the flag when he makes a foul. He who sets the bar the highest falls the farthest. Folks not willing or able to play the game are ready to tell the players where they went wrong. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mary Pride Marginalized by Patriarchy?

by Karen Campbell from her blog That MomMary Pride was one of the first leaders in the modern homeschooling movement. Her book The Way Home was a powerful rebuttal of the radical feminist agenda and she minced no words as she made an appeal for rejecting all sorts of sacred cows. Mary was outspoken and certainly no model of the perfect patriarch wife and ruffled lots of male feathers. One of my fondest memories of homeschooling in the early days (nearly 30 years ago now) is of a conference in the St. Louis area with Gregg Harris, Michael Farris, and Mary … [Read more...]
