Crazy Comment Monday!

I know, another video... but this is too good to pass up. (Warning: F-word at beginning. I didn't notice it the first time through...) These poor downtrodden young students, who ostensibly have gazoodles of money to spend or borrow for college, seem to feel that it is your responsibility to buy their birth control. They only want to be treated like adults. And it isn't fair that the government spends so much on defense and that Planned Parenthood is so derided in the news. Activism time! People giggling, holding silly signs and talking about how they have sex ("SEEEX!") helps you think of them as adults discussing an alternate point of view, right? Yeah. That'll do it. Tell you what: if you want to be treated like adults, fine. A rational, calm, non-giggly argument could be made for the public benefits of STD testing being made available at taxpayer expense. Slogans like, "We lube and we vote" probably doesn't qualify as a rational argument in most circles, however.

  1. Gag.

    A lot of those kids don't look old enough to shave, never mind vote. And No Thank You to my tax dollars going to an organization that will give an abortion to a 13 year old girl without parental notification (never mind consent).

    Also, I miss you in my comments Mrs. C! You didn't enter my pencil sharpener drawing!

  2. Ahhhh....they want to be treated like adults, because all the adults *I* know make Youtube videos announcing that they have sex! I mean, isn't that the mature and responsible thing? To be all giggly and take something that should be private and intimate and special and lay it out for the whole world on the 'puter?

    I think part of being an adult is being patient and waiting for the right person, making sure you are at a point in your life where *you* can make sure your bases are covered if they need covering.

    And, I agree with Deb- I won't support any organization that number one would provide an abortion to a child, but two, keep secrets from parents.

  3. Well, I guess no one told you that responsibility and freedom have divorced... long ago. My daughter doesn't think I treat her like an adult either. She whines, complains, "tweaks out" about it. But, then when the courts did treat her like an adult she whined, complained and "tweaked out" too.

  4. I think part of being an adult is to stop saying, "Treat me like an adult."

    I think perhaps they just got it wrong and meant, "Treat me like a dolt.....'cause that's how I am behaving."

  5. If you have to demand someone to treat you like an adult, it usually means you are not acting like one. Isn't it funny that mature responsible kids don't have to say that because, when you act like an adult, people treat you with respect?

  6. I am not even sure what to say about that. I can't believe that we should pay for their freedom to choose whether or not they should be allowed to terminate the life of an innocent baby.

    Very frustrating!!! and infuriating!!!!!!

  7. If they really want to have the funding shifted from subsidising Oil companies to Planned Parenthood, then they should be making video's about how they plan to drive solar powered cars, avoid using any plastic products.

    The consumer has only one point in the chain where they can really make a difference.

  8. I found this video a bit SHOCKING, and was wondering what it's POINT was. When it finally GOT to the point, I thought it was well-made and I have to AGREE with its point.

    However, I find it hard to believe that all these young people are being responsible or telling the truth about having sex.

    The bigger problem I see, however, is that so many are out having sex without it being a loving RESPONSIBLE act with another person--it's more about lust and the moment with a lot of these young (and older) people. Society seems to be condoning and encouraging that viewpoint.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
