Quoting Quiverfull: Is Homeschooling the Answer to Temper Tantrums?

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

homeschool sex machine

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Letting Boys Be Boys Best Accomplished With Homeschooling?

hatingschool

by some unnamed LAF Editor because Ladies Against Feminism has stopped putting some of the authors names on their pieces. 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. Schools are the factory of feminism. Boys who don’t sit well with this are normal. No wonder they are treated like defective girls. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Not to be a Homeschooling Hypocrite?

homeschooledhypocrites

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?

marginalized

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sex Ed Via Guinea Pig?

by Marjorie Holsten from The Raw Story - Homeschooling Expert: Sex Ed is a Liberal Plot Make Kids Watch Guinea Pigs do it Instead “People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children?” she remarked. “If you go deep down and you connect those dots, you see that when children are desensitized to sexual things, that affects their ability at a later date to bond with a spouse.” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Can Accountability and Standards Be ‘Wrong’?

rotten fruit

by Karen Campbell at her blog That Mom - Patriarchy on Trial, part four A new, organized, and clearly focused group of former homeschool students, motivated, in part, by the bad fruits of patriocentric homeschooling, have taken up the banner for homeschooling reform, putting the very good ideals at the heart of homeschooling at risk. Their legitimate concerns over some instances of sexual, physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse of children have resulted in their misguided call for state-operated control over all homeschooling and have even extended to their advancement of “homosexual rights” for homeschooled children. Though I have had similar concerns about treatment of all children, home … [Read more...]

News: Duggars Dealing With Bill Gothard Fallout

jessaseawald

Jezebel.Com has written a horribly funny but thought-provoking  piece on the changes through the years in the Duggar family along with how they are answering the criticisms for following Bill "Grabby Hands" Gothard - How are the Duggars dealing with the Gothard Sex Scandal?So, what follows may be the greatest Duggar based conspiracy theory that you've read this month. Ok, it's not that great but it's a theory. Now, it is well known among Gothard's that the kind of crunchy, curly home-permed hair favored by Michelle and the clan in the early season is based on preferences of Gothard, who loved long, wavy womanly hair and damn the woman who does not possess sacred this crown. Now it may … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Killer Babies?

killerbaby

by Voddie Bauchaum from the sermon 'The Doctrine of Depravity' "One of the reasons that God makes human babies small is so they won't kill their parents in their sleep. They're evil. Yes, this is true of children. 'None is righteous; no, not one.'…Yes, that little, precious one—you better believe it. If you don't, you miss the big picture and you don't realize your desperate need to get the gospel to your child again and again and again and again." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When You Graduate You’ve Accomplished Nothing?

IMG_1432

by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog - Congratulations, graduates: you've done exactly what you're expected and legally required to do(Editor's note: While this isn't necessarily a 'quiverfull' or 'evangelical' issue, it is something rather screwy that seems to go against all conventional wisdom. Particularly since for some kids just getting through high school itself is a major accomplishment. What is wrong with celebrating the hard work, dedication and accomplishment of someone else?) … [Read more...]
