I am surprised that Erika does not mention checking kids' homeworks as one of her job ? dead
I mean around where I live, it is pretty usual for parents (of young kids) to sit with the kiddo each evening anf ask what needs to be learned or if help is needed somewhere etc.
The minimum would be asking if the kid got any new grade (and show the paper piece)… ?

Don't you still need to show some interest (in what your kid does at school) even if he is not home schooled anymore…

Haven't read the post yet, but I am always ALWAYS fond of people who are self-righteous about one of their decisions, and then seem to completely forget how much shit-talking they did in regards to it when their situation or perspective changes. BIG FAN.

IMO her post makes it clear that it wasn't her choice, or at least her desire, to put the kids in school and that she won't discuss why.  Soooo I wonder what the reason is behind this? She doesn't seem to be working outside the home.

Maybe something happened to Bob, like possibly his business started failing or something and he had to take a job with a company i.e. not be self-employed anymore. Maybe one of the kids has special needs of some kind that just weren't being met properly with Erika's homeschool.
Who knows. Erika better tell fairly soon…

Oh my goodness, I really want to know what all of those "circumstances" are.  popcorn

With regards to homework, she has time on her "example" schedule for supervising kid's music practice, homework, and finish dinner prep, so I kind of assume that she's be helping with that.

I also want to know what public school gets out at 1:00 every Friday!  Is that a new thing some places?

Maybe they aren't passing their annual exams (they have to take something right?) there must be some sort of regulation on how many kids one person can homeschool at a time – when those kids span all grade levels there literally might not be enough hours to attend to each one as lawfully required. I definitely got the impression that this wasn't her idea – but it sounds like ALL kids are in school now not even just the youngest ones or oldest ones. Maybe she somehow lost her creditation as a homeschooler (you need to be approved somehow I'm sure). Who knows.

My kids' school gets out at 12:45 on Fridays. It's pretty typical in most school systems (particularly for elementary school) for one early release day a week now, since start times are generally earlier.

Monroe House For Jesus My quote button isn't working.  Do they live in WA state?  I can't remember.  Anyway, I was wondering if it was something like that as well.  Some type of state intervention.  But, you'd be surprised how VERY little regulation there is of homeschooling in a lot of states.  I'm not sure about where they live; all of my experience is in southern states.

Also Erika doesn't mention anything about getting the kids back into homeschooling… So the "circumstances" may be… permanent ? I think we can rule out the "putting the kids into public school so that Erika goes back to work to get money".

I am left with :

  1. Husband made the decision,
  2. or the state started to investigate the kids situation
  3. (the parents are not divorcing…. aren't they ?)

How can she possibly work with that schedule she posted? Help me understand what I'm missing. I've always worked full time except for 4 months after each of my 2 babies.

Spoons for Boob Selfies – Interesting!  None of the school districts around me do that so it seemed really unusual.
