    The Yoda version of homeschooling.

    This has to be one of the most poorly-written pieces I’ve seen. It’s not negative. It’s just bad:

  • There are no fixed hours of learning per subject. This means that a child has the advantage of assigning more number of hours to the subject that seems tough WITHOUT any additional pressure.
  • Other worrying issues pertaining to discipline and ethics also make the school system less welcome.
  • After all, nobody can understand or appreciate your child more than yourself.
  • Hurt my eyes do.

    I notice that Mary managed to write a self-description that would apply to a very large segment of the online population. I mean, I’m a blogger who modified her own template (internet marketer, promoter, and designer, and my comments and posts have together appeared in many online publications) I’ve got ecclectic interests, I’ve been writing since the age of 3, and if you count research journals and corporate newsletters, I’ve got the hard print side down, too. If only the Universal Life Church would expand its certifications beyond “minister” to include “life coach” — it’d be down to an online form between me and taking over Mary’s life!

    (incidentally, what does one have to do to become a *certified* “life coach”?)

    Yeah, but is she an accredited certified life coach?

    I’d take the training except I’m concerned that my head would expand and become misshapen, too. Beldar was life coach, too.

    The publications she writes for mainly seem to have “Chronicle” in their names, and the sites have a common design.

    Trouble is, newbies merely search, and are overwhelmed by all the info. Almost anyone can write anything online.

    (I’d have done something fancy with the URL, but I don’t see the formatting instructions for dim bulbs — hope it doesn’t skew the frame, or whatever this beige thing in the middle is)
