1) Um we do have a clean house, but we do actually LIVE in it all day. If she wants to play that game I would expect I should be able to eat off her floors any time since she has all day to herself with her kids in school.. (stereotype much!?)
2) Desks? Does she make her children do all their homework confined to a desk after school or in the kitchen or family room where most kids want to be and learning happens best when you are comfortable. We will happily continue to school in the kitchen, in front of the fireplace, on a blanket under the shade tree in the front yard, out by the creek with a load of books, or sprawled on my bed, tyvm! BTW, We picked up desks from the garbage and the kids were interested in them for about a week then never sat in them again, they're long gone.
3) Many ps kids are sleep deprived! My kids are up at 6:30 am, I never have to wake them up in the mornings.
4) Um, "nutritious"!!!!???? I would have to come waaaaaaaay down in my standards to feed my children a meal that could compare with the schools pathetic standards of nutrition! I feed my kids more nutritious meals in a week than most schools would serve in a year! Oh, and I also don't have vending machines in my house, last time I checked.
5) Pretty sure she'd be horrified at how much physical activity my kids get- like hours every day! Oh the horror, they should be at their desks studying their reflections in the perfectly spotless veneer while eating chicken fingers and tater tots and juice with high fructose corn syrup in it! :p
6) Breaks? You mean a 15 minute recess that when I went to school was enforced no matter how dang cold it was outside, and we would huddle together shivering, desperately waiting for the bell to ring so we could go back inside and escape the -20 windchill?
What would we do w/o the expertise of non homeschooling parents!!?? And the article she linked to was disgusting, offensive and quite comical, not to mention really poor reporting, she named not one source, not one quote, no studies, no facts, no proof, no evidence whatsoever. *Whatever*!!
