Pop quiz, boys and girls! Question: How many reasons for homeschooling can you find in this article? Besides the one that's the subject of the article, of course.
"The T-shirts ... are posing dress-code dilemmas on Washington area campuses."
"sexually suggestive T-shirts often fall into a gray area that requires officials to evaluate one shirt at a time"
" 'I know she's a sweet girl, and I know that she's very conservative and is not sexually active," Ajanaku [girl's mother] said. "Other people would probably get the wrong message, but I am pretty much like, 'Who cares what they think?'" (A two-fer!)
"And she said: 'I don't know. My dad knows that I have it,'" he recalled. "So I called the dad, and, of course, he had no idea."
"Rosa Pulley tried to order her daughter Keana ... to return a T-shirt that says, "yes, but not with u!" But Keana insisted."
"But if they're not single, it'd kind of [tick] me off, like they're a tease. I wouldn't let my girlfriend wear that." (Another two-fer.)
A few more sprinkled throughout.
Now don't think I'm a controlling monster. I even let Offspring #1 wear her fish pants (in eye-searing combination with pink high-tops) nearly every day (they do get washed...); because I, too, believe in picking my battles.
I'm just not under the impression that a wholescale invasion of the shire by orcs, which I've left myself utterly unable to defend against, constitutes a judicious choice of strategic surrender.
