    Well that makes sense, so the family probably wsn't doing anything wrong legally, but the tutor was probably surprised about the no adult supervision.

They each felt better about themselves.
    I love this! favorite oldest, middle etc., hehehe, good parenting.

    Bible Dad needs to get some anger management classes for sure. I'm sure his family has been bullied by his temper for years. And trying to mask that in religion is heinous.

    I feel sorry for Brittany.

    Analyzing the rock and rolls

    I can't resist psychoanalyzing the rocknroll family. They said they freaked out at the idea of their kids leaving them, and indeed they didn't have them leave to go to school, and they weren't preparing them to be able to leave for college. They were training them to join the family business. If the family business had been dry cleaning instead of rock and roll, the lack of choice wouldn't have been obscured by the coolness.

    I like watching this show, but I sure wouldn't sign up to be on it. I don't want to think about who the producers would consider to be the opposite of us, and if I can avoid ever meeting Bible Dad, that will be fine.

    How do you live with a man like that? How is it possible? I think that you just eventually die inside.

    Here's the skinny on the home schooling.

    Rock and roll kid #1, Xaundelle, who was also home schooled like R&R kids #2 and #3, graduated at the age of 18 (deliberately at 18 instead of younger because at 15 she chose to start working a job - a job she still works today) with college credits. She continues to go to college, work her job and still finds time to work with dad and play in a band.

    Rock and roll kid #2, Corin, soon after shooting started working his first job at a hospital. He is studying for college entry exams at 16 and has expressed an interest in radiology just in case he doesn't become a rock star.

    Rock and roll kid #3, Saphraine at almost 15 is also studying for college entry exams and is already too intelligent for her own good. Fashion and styling are her vocational interests if these 2 minutes of her allotted 15 don't make her a star.

    Thanks for watching. It's all very exciting... :rolleyes

    Very interesting....

    Regarding college, see my post above this.

    Thanks for correcting me.. I'll drive to South Carolina then! That would be better anyway!
