  1. Lisafer


    I thought I'd write a blog post about homeschooling, one of the parts of my upbringing of which I have both good and bad memories. To be frank, I'm actually currently homeschooling my own older child (the other is too young yet). I think a lot of the difference between me and my parents lies in why, not as much in how. I'm not doing it to keep my children from the world. I'm not Christian myself, but probably 90% of the public school teachers in this area are. I'm homeschooling because I enjoy providing my children with an educational experience that I can tailor to their learning styles.
  2. A new blog with a new title that makes for an unfortunate-sounding acronym. Continued from:
  3. Shoes, schedules, IKEA, jobs . . . It's all about Erika. Carry on. (Last seen here:
  4. Continues from Part 3: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/24836-erika-shupe-grim-rictus-large-families-on-purpose-part-3/
  5. Erika *shudder* has not posted much new content lately. She's been mostly reposting old entries. *smug grin* The Shupes have 9 homeschooled kids. All of the children, from the teens down to the toddlers, go to bed at the same time. But the teens are allowed to get up as early as they want! *middle finger* Their days are blocked out in 15 minute increments, and everything is superduper organized. Most of the time the kids aren't allowed to play in the yard because it's too muddy, so Erika makes them run laps on the deck for a few minutes for exercise. Mealtime at the Shupe residence i
  6. Previous thread here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25981 Erika archive: viewforum.php?f=207 How to summarize Erika? *wince* Erika has 9 homeschooled kids and recently suffered a miscarriage. She does not believe that women in their 40s are more likely to suffer miscarriages, instead claiming that that's just something doctors made up out of fear of overpopulation. *incredulous look* All of her children, from the 16-year-old down to the toddlers, go to bed at the same time. But the teens are allowed to get up as early as they want! *raspberry* Their days are block
  7. Perennially wink/smile/sigh Erika who's blog I usually like (her writing style is quite good and her tips are interesting if not relevant to me) somehow turned a seemingly nice comment from a blog reader into a foaming diatribe about the readers children and lifestyle. I like her blog, but she's really lost it this time. She's an ATI AND Maxwell fan (heavily promotes his books). Feel free to visit..... Www.largefamiliesonpurpose.com.
  8. Announcement video on her YouTube. I really thought (and hoped) the twins would be her last, especially as she's admitted to using some form of contraception - she schedules her poor babies from day 1 so doesn't even get the limited and uncertain break that nursing on demand can provide.
  9. 'Large Families on Purpose' is one of my favorite fundy blogs. While Erika is batshit crazy and super controlling, I do think she is gifted when it comes to organizing and love to read her posts on the subject. Today I noticed she posted new pictures of the kids. What struck me is that most of the girls were in sleeveless tops and the oldest daughter's was especially noticeable. These tops were all quite appropriate but hardly something you see on most fundy kids! This aught my attention because Erika has written time and time again about how important modesty is (while hypocritica
  10. Well, it's been rehomed too. From her comments section on her facebook page, when asked how the puppy situation was going: When a reader suggests that she try other breeds of dogs, she's just not getting it:
  11. largefamiliesonpurpose.com/2013/05/losing-baby-weight-part-1-diet-plan.html (I searched for this topic but apologize if it's been posted before. This is my first time starting a thread, but I was so upset that I just had to do it.) I'm not a dietician by any means, and more power to Erika if this is what she wants for herself, but when I read that she was imposing this plan on the oldest girl (fifteen), I was really concerned. It seems A.) really limiting nutritionally, and B.) not enough calories for an active fifteen-year-old. I'm even more disturbed that she's referr
  12. I wish I was making this up. A sponsored ad from Large Families on Purpose came up with a link to an article from Generation Cedar. I hid that thing right quick. *shudder* She's spending money to spread her message. UGH.
  13. Yeah, well, she rehomed it. It wasn't trainable enough for her, so she ditched it and got a puppy (another Shih Tzu) instead. I really wish I was kidding. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 597&type=1
  14. Perhaps Hell has indeed frozen over. I just read this on Facebook: First she got birds. Even more shocking, she kept them for more than a week (birds are extremely messy, something Erika doesn't tolerate... remember, she is the one who claims dust mites have a bad odor). Then she was talking about getting a cat, but I have no clue if they actually followed through with this or not. Cats can not be controlled and we all know Erika loves control, so I am hoping she moved on from this idea. Now she wants a dog? Even more shocking, she wants a PUPPY? She will have a ne
  15. Erica Shupe is so much worse than Kate Gosslein...She is so tightly wound, so controlling, that the hospital where she delivered her last children KEPT all her "baby notes" to turn over to Child Protective Svs. The true reason she no longer sees her inlaws, besides all their criticism of her, is that her mother in law took one of her kids to another room to feed her, to quiet her crying from hunger, and Erica threw down. WHO refuses to allow her child to be fed unless she says so??? Check out how many of her posts gave been deleted. Wonder how many letters they got from CPS?
  16. Including Zsu! facebook.com/LargeFamiliesOnPurpose Erika posted a link to this article: foxnews.com/health/2014/08/13/new-method-to-help-newborns-sleep-through-night/ Which takes abusive sleep training tactics to the next level by suggesting you start with newborns. Why wait until they are the ripe old age of 6 weeks? She states she has been doing this for 16 years which shouldn't surprise anyone. But instead of likes and support, she got a ton of comments about how neglectful and cruel this is, not to mention unscientific, since
  17. Serving Erika that is. In her most recent post she gives her readers a peek into their summer schedule, and while Erika is very generous (giving her oldest daughters a WHOLE 30 minutes of free time per day), one can't help but notice that they spend a large majority of their day caring for Erika's children and cleaning Erika's house. largefamiliesonpurpose.com/2014/06/summer-schedule-2014-for-nine-children.html#more From the comments: Reader: Erika:
  18. From her FB page: HELP WITH PRODUCTIVITY & LEARNING - I was told something at the recent Christian Heritage Homeschool and Family Discipleship Conference that really struck a chord with me, and which I thought you all might benefit from as well. That it's not only good to strive to be more productive and learning with our time, but to *actually have less entertainment available*. I often think we should be listening more to hymns during our days than Broadway musical music or movie sound tracks; that we should listen to messages in the car instead of audio books all the time; t
  19. Because clearly her 47 previous posts on the topic are not enough
  20. largefamiliesonpurpose.com/2011/04/large-families-on-purpose-our-home.html I don't get tired of Erika's particular brand of crazy. There is so much to comment on. The way she stacks up her children like rabbits in a coop... When she had a baby it would sleep in her closet. Those bunk beds in front of windows have got to be a hazard in case of a fire. It's kind of impressive really how they fit 11 people in an pretty small house. I think the lack of space and privacy would drive me crazy though. You can't be claustrophobic to be a Shupe kid. Interesting how Eri
  21. largefamiliesonpurpose.com/2013/11/developing-character-of-faithfulness.html#more *smile* *chuckle* *punishmentexercise* Apparently her 7yr old daughter moans about sweeping the kitchen floor every day. With statements like this... Poor child. That little bit of rebellion is going to be squashed out of her soon. Erica *smile* *chuckle* totally freaks me out, she is a total control freak wrapped up in religion. I click on her periodically for the horror. One thing I've noticed and would be interested t
  22. I found these instructions for jamming as many children as possible into a bedroom .largefamiliesonpurpose.com/2012/10/siblings-sharing-bedrooms-you-have-how.html There aren't any shelving but I found all the *chuckle* and such to be funny. Also the idea that the girls need to keep their toys in their room so the boys won't break them and because boys just don't like girl toys. Edited to fix link breakage method. Please, for the sake of those on mobile devices, remove prefix, don't replace dots with DOT. _lilith
