      Pregnant at 18. That is so young. You’d think they were fundies. 

      Sue got pregnant with her first at 14 right? Teen parents often have children who become teen parents.

      They’ve been so lax with the youngest 4 daughters compared to the oldest 4 daughters. They are already doomed to rebel in my opinion. They weren’t raised by JB and Michelle exclusively. I’m not saying all the girls will escape fundie land. But I’m guessing at least 2 will. They’ve been ignored so much that I can’t imagine there is as much of a strong hold on them compared to their oldest sisters. 

      My money is on Jennifer and Josie. Jennifer has been over it since day 1 and Josie has a curious, inquisitive nature. She questions things and I don’t think she’s going to take ‘because, Jesus’ as the answer to everything. As long as her questioning spirit isn’t crushed, she’s going to realize that something smells fishy here and it’s not the BBQ tuna.

      can someone remind me who Johannah’s buddy team captain/sister mom was? I think that will give a good idea of which way she goes.

      On the teacher meet & greet days, I used to introduce myself to the teachers and apologize in advance for them having to attempt to educate my kids and keep them from killing themselves. Yes, I liked when they were someone else's problem for 6-7 hours a day. What I DID NOT LIKE was the teachers telling me to "instill the importance of education" in my children. There's a helluva lot more to education than sitting in a classroom. If the teachers could not entice my children in the classroom, that was totally not my problem. I had many go-rounds with teachers and administrators over this. Kids would ace the standardized tests but be flunking the classroom. 

      I have friends who are teachers and my MIL is a retired teacher...most of them are looking for a way out of education. My SIL is finishing a Master's in something so he can also avoid attempting to teach algebra to a bunch of kids who don't give a shit. 

      In my youngest's high school, I doubt there was any serious learning going on, it was more like being a zookeeper and practicing crowd control. He dropped out 1/2 way through 10th grade. None of them graduated from HS, yet they've all excelled in college. 

      it’s unfortunate that our public schools are not given the resources that would allow teachers to try and reach those kids who seem otherwise uninterested. There’s too much standardized testing and reliance on those and only those results for determining success.  This reminds me of story my MIL told me about DH from late elementary/early middle school. DH received several 0’s on math assignments for not showing his work despite having the right answer.  MIL was not going to have that and went into the school to give the teacher a talking to; she obviously didn’t realize the unique genius of DH’s math abilities. My MIL is domineering and got the teacher to give him credit. (I asked DH about this and he had no memory, but wouldn’t put using a calculator and lying about it when caught past him- hence not showing work).  This story makes me sad and upset because the only thing my MIL  saw was a right answer is the only thing that matters. I wish the teacher had let the 0’s stand. This was not DH’s first rodeo, he had been in school long enough to follow directions. If the worksheet said show your work, then show your work, even if you don’t need it. School is about more than getting right answers, it’s also about social skills, how to behave and interact with each other. There’s going to be times in life, in your future career, that you will need to read the directions and follow the rules. You need to know how to behave in group-settings, you need to know when to listen and when to wait your turn. Public schools gives us these things and they shouldn’t be undervalued or dismissed to focus solely on right answers on tests. Teachers can only do so much if the attitudes at home aren’t on the same page. 
       

      I know there is a rigidness that can accompany academics which can be difficult for children of all ages. Structured environments can feel like a cage to one and support to another.  There are lots of other places besides school where learning to live and interact in a social world can occur. I do not want give the impression that school is the best or only place this can be done. I just think since children spend such a large amount of their lives there it should not be overlooked while ‘right answers on tests’ are the only thing in focus

      I look like my dad, which is nice because when I miss him, I can look in the mirror.
