    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    @ErikWilliam Maybe she was always going to be the odd one out in the family? It’s not uncommon for there to be some academic siblings and then one that struggles. Wouldn’t she have already learnt how to read by 6th grade?

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    Well this is interesting. As I said, homeschooling (as opposed to distance education for remote rural children) as far as I'm aware is really uncommon in my country - I've never heard of anyone ever (in tv, conversation, news etc) being homeschooled for a reason other than doing distance...

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    Through browsing the internet, it seems that homeschooling is common and popular in the US (well beyond special needs situations). Why is that? The US has free public schooling for all kids doesn't it? The pressures and mental demands on parents to educate their kids all day everyday through...

    Costume changes during a program

    I think Zagitova also used reversible sequins to change parts of her Swan Lake dress from white to black.

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    Actually I do have a question for those who know - this general topic has made me wonder. How does homeschooling work? (In my country it isn't a thing -- aside from distance education for those on very remote properties -- so I'm curious) For example, hypothetically, if I was homeschooling a...

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    Wow that’s new. I got taught at school that the pill would sterilise you for up to 5 years if you took it. Which is obviously incorrect. I remember going home and asking my mother about that and she pointed out she was pregnant within weeks of stopping taking the old school pill (the one with...

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    I would be furious if he 'martyred' himself over this - either through suicide or attack in prison. All that happens then is that others are then forced to feel guilty for his actions the rest of their lives. And in this case, his sisters especially. If such a thing was to happen, it would...

    The Dance Hall 8: Join the Maskerade 2020-2021

    "Street Dance Rhythms" (such as hip hop, disco, swing, krump, popping, funk, etc.), jazz, reggae (reggaeton) and blues" Honestly, I think I would just rather a much more structured short dance/rhythm dance with a bigger set pattern. Grand artistic choices that suit the styles of the teams can...

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    I think a concern is how long will he get in prison anyway? A handful of years at most I'll bet. And then after those years, he will probably stand up in church and give (another) testimony about how god has cured him and all his family will be required to stand up and publicly 'offer up their...

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    Given Josh’s actions, I doubt that he at home diligently helping Anna with the children. For starters, the times when he was downloading all that stuff was in the late afternoon, early evening when Anna would have been feeding and bathing the kids at home. She’d be homeschooling them during the...

    It’s just internet monitoring software where a report is sent to another person of your internet activity so they can call you out on accessing certain sites.

    Just as an aside, as a general observation - not specifically about this family - I think openness about periods is a good thing. I think a lot of girls are raised with periods being a ‘secret and embarrassing’ thing and a bit of openness about it would be good.

    I know, I was in Scouts myself and my experience of it as a child was great (although of course at that age I didn't know anything about the management or politics of it). Such a shame what happened to it and that bad people had to wreck the thing for everyone else. I think that boys...

    I would suppose that it is more the case that pedophiles are attracted to organisations and systems which give them power and access. It's why there seems to be a disproportionate amount of pedophiles in things like religious groups and children's sports ... it's just where they can get access...

    Josh Duggar ('19 Kids and Counting') Arrested by Feds

    It probably doesn’t help that a lot of the voices Anna would hear on social networks are extremely opposed to everything about her life and faith. It might seem like an all or nothing equation to her. But there’s millions and millions of people around the world who have faith in religion and...
