I go to a large homeschool gym class on Mondays. We have tons of kids and moms and, of course, everyone does homeschooling their own way. There are a few ladies who are, shall we say, opinionated about who is doing it right and who is doing it wrong. The funny thing is it's coming from all sides of the coin.
We have a pretty hardcore Unschooling mom who can't mention what they are doing tomorrow without mentioning how it was ONLY her child's idea and 'Thank God, I don't make my kids follow the stifling doctrine that SO many homeschoolers do. My kids and I laugh when we leave about how so and so is worried about a test. Tests! We're homeschoolers. We're not supposed to do tests.' or 'For April Fool's Day, I bought the kids workbooks. HAHAHA!'
I sat in the nursery last year with a woman who compulsively listed all the books she got from the library for her Kinder. They were extremely Charlotte Mason.If you weren't, she basically thought your child was going to be illiterate. LOL
We have 2 moms who spend the whole time talking about what level of Abeka their kids are on and how the ONLY way to get to into college was Abeka. "Can you imagine not being able to afford a DECENT curriculum like Abeka? Do people actually think they can teach that kid with those dollar store workbooks?Ha! Whatever!"
Oh, and we have a handful of Classical Conversation ladies that spend the entire time following people around trying to get them to join and explain how CC is the only way to turn out a doctor or scientist. LOL
Do you know any Method Snobs? How do you deal with them?
