This one is for Megan: ”The husbands and wives in these [radically fundamentalist 'movement'] families feel themselves to be under a religious compulsion to have large families, a homebound and submissive wife and mother who is responsible for the schooling of the children, and only one breadwinner. These families are not living in romantic, rural, self-sufficient farmhouses; they are in trailer parks, 1,000 square foot homes, houses owned by relatives, and some, on tarps in fields or parking lots.”
Poor abused Megan and her poor abused children living in their trailer park. And she thought she was living in a “romantic, rural, self-sufficient farmhouse” that grew its own vegatables and taught the kids the value of hard work. No, wait, what? Oh, yeah, my children were home-schooled, too. And you should see how poorly ackadeemikally they did, and how mal-adjusted socially they
turned out to be.
