    This essay is a day early but pretty darned good. I have only one little quibble. I’m sure it will jump right out at you, too.

    Wow, it only took her five hours to teach her kid to read? LOL
    “five prized hours of privacy and freedom to teach them to read.”

    She keeps referred to five hours, I’m thinking she meant five DAYS (although that sentence above still wouldn’t make sense…)

    Also, I didn’t think Einstein was homeschooled. He spent one year out of school, but other than that he was part of the institutionalized school setting (and hated it).

    Is this the quibble?

    ” There are full-time homeschooling moms and afterschooling moms”

    What the heck is afterschooling? Is that what we called homework when I was a public school student?

    I too felt that she was referring to 5 hours per day.

    My personal quibble is with “I feel sorry for those kids that their mothers don’t love them.”. She not only failed to chastise her child for that comment, but portayed it positively. Nice attitude from an evidently “Christian” woman.

    Yeah- the “afterschooling” got to me. That has to mean g-school parents who (*shudder*) actually work with their kids in the evenings. Oh, the humanity!
