This was something posted on Lori Alexander’s secret chatroom and it’s quite appalling. I’ve blacked out the names of the guilty original parties. This post is a perfect example of homeschooling to isolate, which sometimes turns into homeschooling to hide abuse. Not saying that is what this poster is doing, but this type of isolation just breeds abuse.
The original poster has already deleted this post and all of the replies, even if at least a few of the replies agreed this was overkill for punishment. The original poster is upset that she got swift, hard, immediate pushback. Negative comments when she was expecting glowing, gushing telling how right she was.
Why punish at all? Why not simply stop and talk to your child and ask what was going on? In some of the replies the mother stated that the girl had eaten ‘junk food’ and suffered some sort of gastric distress. Who wants to go sit through a class when they are unwell? There could have been good reasons why the girl skipped the class that has nothing to do with any perceived rebellion.
Whatever the reason this is just completely over the top punishment, even beyond what Debi and Michael Pearl might mete out. Sometimes I wonder with these chat rooms and things if it’s making things worse. One woman says she spanked for disobedience, so the next mother must say she spanked and took away the cell phone. Someone else says spanked, took cell phone and grounded, and so on, a sick one upmanship that keeps spiraling to a ridiculous place.
This poor girl has nothing, no ability to even visit the restroom without it being noted and controlled by her mother. This is not parenting, this is being a prison guard.
