You should not be shocked by *anything* about a group you did not take the time to learn about before posting. Please read the pinned post so as to avoid any further confusion, I promise you it will be very helpful.
May 2018, someone fairly new to the group (male) was sarcastic and tacky:
I took the author's name off of this:He came right back:________________________If you're not sure if you're an experienced unschooler, then you aren't.
Why would you assume I don't want my name attributed to that? I thought it was pretty funny. :-) I would like the credit for it.Alex Arnott:
I doubt assumptions were made. Who wrote it doesnít matter. Itís what was written that Sandra is commenting about. Itís not about you. Itís about helping others.Virginia Warren:
Was it an honest question or a joke?[That dad]:
For an unschooling group, people sure seem pretty uptight.
Sandra Dodd, 2015:
One day I got cranky, on Radical Unschooling Info because several topics had people being whiney and rude. I'm saving this so I can link it the next time I want to express those ideas, without going on a fresh rant. My life will be more peaceful if I can leave a link rather than say these things again. There will be other people in the future who could use knowing that such frustration can build up.It's happened. I'm tired of helping new unschoolers, because some people have been exceedingly tacky recently. I'll probably recover, but what a bunch of bullshit, people! Be nice or be gone. Partly it's facebook, and that people join groups without reading the descriptions or the pinned posts, and then get mad at me for wishing they had read it.
