I have liked quite a few homeschool pages on facebook. I like to get the little inspirational sayings, "hear" what others are doing with their kids, and mine for good ideas. I usually scan the comments on the posts to see what others think of it, have they maybe tried it and have a suggestion, etc.
I have noticed lately that the comments on these feeds are often (and getting more often) somebody railing against some strawman homeschooler. I join these threads to read inspirational sayings and get ideas and I'm getting a little tired of this spam.
So I'm wondering if this also goes the other way. Is there some of us homeschoolers out there that deliberately join some public school groups and argue against a strawman public school parent? What would that look and sound like?
Here is the strawman homeschooler (and yes they want it to be both ways at the same time): We are religious fanatics that want total control over our children, never allow the children to interact with other people, and never teach them anything. We lazily follow some curriculum half-heartedly while never challenging or pushing our children to be great or to even get out of their comfort zone. We beat and abuse our children and force them to do all of the work in the house. And we allow them to run wild in the streets at all hours of the day and night so obviously no work whatsoever is being done in the house.
Can you add any parts to the strawman homeschooler?
