First up for the Steven Anderson family I just have to share this screen cap from his wife, Zsuzsanna Anderson. It’s of a homeschooling worksheet by daughter Miriam.
Miriam is now 11 years old according to Zsuzsanna’s blog. I know that Zsuzsanna is homeschooling those children. I know that with the large number of children she has it has to be hard to stay on top of everyone’s unique educational needs. I know that the issues with having to abandon her home for other places for months on end just to get mold remediation has to be very hard. But… but I am just going to say it. An 11 year old that thinks ‘Banned’ is spelled ‘Band’ has been seriously failed along the way by whatever educational method is going on there.
We’re not even going to go into the sick ideas that make bragging that her father cannot go to certain countries in the world a thing. Those poor kids.
On the other Anderson front Zsu has also announced that 17 year old son Solomon is getting married next year.
Congrats. I guess.
Why am I bringing up all of these things? Because the Anderson’s recent posts, on both social media and on their blogs are illustrative of the big failures of Quiverfull, the realities that are glossed over, undereducated children, undereducated children getting married young without the skill set it takes to have a successful life.
I don’t know if you’ve followed the drama at Zsuzsanna’s blog about the mold situation in their home, but this is another common principle I’ve seen over the years in too many homes in this sub culture, ignore a problem with the home until it becomes an obvious crisis, which ends up creating major chaos, costs much more money and upends everyone’s lives. Don’t do maintenance, don’t look for the source of a leak until it turns the entire ceiling black, making the home uninhabitable.
Most of these things boil down to a lack of money in the household mixed with a strange ignorance that is cultivated in the more fundamentalist religions. So unnecessary, it sets up children for failure and more of the same chaos in the lives of the parents. Sad.
