Me too. A month after joining I made the faux-pas of saying how healthy it can (CAN, in certain circumstances) be letting a baby cry in loving arms (NEVER alone!). As you can see from my emphatic parentheses, I am still kind of paranoid about it. I got an official warning that those kinds of posts aren't welcome here. I am as anti-CIO as anyone here and was shocked that I wouldn't be welcome because I had a colicky baby and after weeks of trying everything I saw the value in letting him be colicky.
yes, I spent a month suspended from mothering for comments I made about how homeschooling can mask special needs. They were seen as not supportive of homeschooling, and the board was support only.
My kids homeschooled until they were 10 and 12 and some of the woo that gets repeated on the homeschooling board all the time isn't true if your child has LDs or SNs. Some other former homeschoolers with special needs kids have left mothering over this issue.
The party line in the homeschooling community is that when kids are developmental ready, the will just learn the things they need to very easily.
IMHO, it's true for some kids, but not for others. For some kids, buying into that just delays getting them the real help they need from professionals to reach their potential. Yet the party line gets repeated all the time on the homeschooling board here -- moms are told over and over not to worry that their child is obviously behind.
But the truth is the people saying that have never met the child, and don't have a clue if the mom should be worried. Sometimes, moms should be worried and call in experts.
