As many of you are aware, one of the issues I am most vocal about is my criticism of the public education system. This isn’t something I do because I’m trying to make people mad. Inevitably, however, I do realize that my posts and videos are likely to ruffle a few feathers.
I’m okay with that.
Truth be told, I am far more concerned about getting the word out about the true purpose and history of the public school system. It is my firm belief that if people were aware of these things, at least some of them would think twice about exposing their kids to this toxic environment. (Sorry, but I’m not pulling any punches.)

Did you ever notice how everyone today seems to be singing the praises of multitasking? Articles, blogs, and books are completely dedicated to the “art” of doing several things at once as if it were actually a good thing.
I beg to differ.
Gone are the days of considering multitasking to be something as simple as answering the phone or changing the baby’s diaper while making dinner. If only that were the case. Continue reading “Traditional Schooling Is Nothing More Than “Educational” Multitasking”
Although it’s 2018, lately I’ve been reminiscing about older American traditions. Whether this has been brought on by the now common spectacle of kids as young as 2 staring at screens all day instead of playing with toys or always feeling like I’m going to multi-task myself into exhaustion, I don’t know, but I’m certainly convinced that something has got to change. Continue reading “25 Traditional Toys to Buy This Christmas Season”
You know, when it comes to 21st century parenting, let’s admit that we have an epidemic of people who simply aren’t interested in being a part of their kids’ lives.
Am I talking about deadbeat dads? Nope.
Absent mothers? Uh-uh.
Unfortunately, I’m referring to something that is often considered mainstream and is all too often heralded by the mainstream media.
Any guesses? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!

Christmas can be a crazy time of year. Between the shopping, the baking, the crafting, and the wrapping, keeping any house organized can be a bit of a struggle, let alone a homeschooling household.
We live in a world today that touts the importance of doing it all, but the cold, hard truth of it is that no one can do it all.
So today I’m not going to share with you how to homeschool all day and keep a perfectly organized home. Instead, I’m going to share the secret that’s kept our home in one piece over the holidays for the ten years we’ve been homeschooling: Continue reading “The Secret to Cutting Homeschool Clutter This Holiday Season”
Learning the history of public education will change the way you homeschool.
In this day and age, coming across homeschooling advice is as easy as the press of a button.
While tons of useful guidance of all kinds is available, there’s one thing I haven’t seen mentioned thus far. I’m going to tackle it today because I believe it can be vital to the well-being of any homeschool, and it’s something that I don’t think a lot of people give much thought to.
Okay, here goes. Continue reading “Here’s What Every Homeschooling Parent NEEDS to Know”
As a homeschool mom, I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about school – public school, to be exact.
No, I haven’t been thinking of sending my kids back – perish the thought! What I have been thinking about is what life today would be like if the public education system never existed.
To be sure, proponents of government schooling would claim that society wouldn’t be where it is today without it, and I’d have to agree with them.
But that isn’t a good thing. Continue reading “What If Public Education Never Existed?”
If you’ve been here before, you may be aware that besides my blog, I also have a YouTube channel.
A few weeks ago, I made the decision to start sharing not only some DITL vlogs, but also to start a weekly livestream. (Thursdays at 10pm ET)
Today I’m going to share with you the links to those videos, just in case you’re interested. 😉
Thanks so much for being a part of my life, and Happy Homeschooling!
Here are my latest vlogs:
And here are my livestreams:
(The Case for Homeschooling High School)
As someone in the homeschooling community who is very vocal in my criticism of the public education system, there are pretty many comments I hear time and again.
One of these comments is the notion that parents may, indeed, be capable of homeschooling elementary age children, but they just couldn’t possibly be equipped to homeschool high school.
I beg to differ. Continue reading “Discouragement and Isolation in the Name of Education”
Back-to-school time is upon us!
Chances are, your social media accounts have already been inundated with gleeful posts and memes by parents everywhere celebrating their kids’ imminent return to school.
If you’re not the social media type, you’ve likely been “blessed” with video clips on the mainstream media outlets showcasing parents jumping up and down with excitement as their children are driven away on that big yellow bus.
I get it; it’s supposed to be funny.
But it’s not.
It’s high time parents today start using some critical thinking when it comes to their children. Enough is enough.
Enjoy the rant. 🙂
