re: Is homeschooling harmful to the collective? - conservativewifeymom
(I wish there was an applause emoticon) That's terrific! One of the absolute best aspects of homeschooling is the quality time that parent(s) get to spend with their kids, the great conversations, the ability to tailor the instruction and curriculum to each child's strengths and weaknesses, to see...

re: Is homeschooling harmful to the collective? - conservativewifeymom
I agree! I assure you that we certainly do our homework and keep up with developments in education. We have relatives working for the public school system as well as friends with kids in public and private schools. Information flows! The most common reaction we get when people hear we homeschool...

When kids spend 8 hours a day or more with poorly trained public school teachers with no specialized education in the subjects they teach, who follow a government-designed curriculum whose goal is unclear at best and who are unable to provide good disciplinary guidelines (often because they are not ...

re: Is homeschooling harmful to the collective? - conservativewifeymom
If you mean 'fear of government indoctrination,' 'fear of substandard education,' or 'fear of negative socialization as currently exists in public schools' then you're right on target.

You make the most ridiculously generalized statement that do nothing but show how ignorant you are on this topic. Your broad, sweeping statements are completely un-impressive. Every.single.homeschooling.parent we know (with one exception) has at least a Master's degree. Some have Ph.Ds. They are...

It's not just a story, it's true. We're in the 2nd year of this new tax. 5 cents for every plastic or paper bag you need at the store. You need to bring your reusables. Really stupid, especially for those of us who use plastic bags responsibly. We have cats and use them for the kitty litter. M...

Maryland to ditch its disastrous $125M ObamaCare exchange - conservativewifeymom
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/03/29/maryland-to-reportedly-abandon-125m-obamacare-exchange-for-new-system/ To say it's been disastrous is an understatement. I anticipate that, it being Maryland, there will be no consequences for the Lt. Governor who is now running for Governor....
