When she was saying that math was her favorite subject to teach because there is always one correct answer to it, you could tell that what she actually meant is that it's her favorite to teach because all she has to do is flip to the back of the book and look at an answer key. No other effort needed on her part. She says that with language arts and science she can only 'kind of' realize when her kids are doing it correctly. Seriously? Why is she teaching these children when she's admitted a 100 times since she started this homeschooling thing that she herself doesn't even know the things she's teaching them? I just don't understand how this homeschooling thing works. What happens when there isn't an answer key at the back of the book? Do both Ruby and the kids just guess what's right?
How insulting to Julie and Abby to make them sit and read a 4th grade level book. Her middle daughters are old enough to sit and read their own level while the others read, no reason to put them through this pointless ritual each morning to appease their mother. Ruby is in way over her head.

How in the world does Julie not know fractions yet? If they couldn't make it and be on or above level at a private school, there is no hope for them having Ruby as their teacher.

I guess the kids are only getting a portion of the language arts, cause once the free trial runs out, Ruby will be done with it. Too stupid to know they are probably only getting a portion of what it offers.

The math video eve was watching looked extremely dated. These kids need active engagement while learning, manipulatives a variety of ways to learn - especially Eve and Russell.

Why are all of her children ranging from 7-13 learning the exact same science lesson? Julie is sitting there probably bored out of her mind during a solid, liquid and gas activity that she probably learned in K or 1st grade.

How the hell does a child neglect their schoolwork for WEEKS and a parent doesn’t know until a teacher calls home?

My county’s school district recently implemented a parent portal where parents have to sign in online and review their child’s grades/remarks once a week. This applies to K-12th grade. I thought it was crazy and potentially promoting helicopter parenting, but hell, maybe it’s necessary!

Did Ruby say that Julie hasn't yet learned how to divide? Or maybe she just meant dividing fractions? It's all rather concerning in any case. Poor kids.

She definitely said Julie was struggling with fractions because she couldn't divide. Those kids are screwed. As much as I enjoy listening to a Griffiths woman try to sound intelligent for the camera (I have a running list of my favorite quotes from Ruby's homeschool lectures), this is getting really concerning.

At least Ruby admits that she doesn't know enough to teach them now...just weeks ago she lied about getting an A in calculus, when we all know she dropped out to get married before the first semester concluded. Hopefully she still has that math tutor on speed-dial who is also willing to read to her kids at night in exchange for a bowl of soup, so she can go to bed early.

First, Ruby had no business criticizing public school. Julie appears to be behind in math after her time in private school. Homeschooling with Ruby will likely worsen Julie’s math progress after watching this homeschool routine vlog.

Was the reasoning behind homeschooling due to COVID-19 that they’ve experience or was this an excuse to save money by eliminating private school tuition since their channel isn’t producing as much income?

This video seems like a desperate audition to get sponsored in order to get home schooling supplies for free. It would not surprise me if that’s how Ruby plans on funding her home schooling project.

She seriously spends more time buying curriculum than teaching. This is truly her replacement for clothes shopping.

Everything is so "cute" too. RubyClueless, teaching is not "cute". Just get your head out of your ass and start really teaching those kids!

She just wants pats on the back for every damn thing she does.....going to Chads school WITHOUT a mask was such an irresponsible thing to do.

I skipped most of the vlog since I don't give a flying rats ass on watching her privileged ass showing off all the things she bought to collect dust in their empty "school room".

OMG I couldn’t believe the kids at Chad’s school were walking around without masks or anything. Not only were there tons of kids, I saw Russell in the mix.

Is that how it is elsewhere?! Where I live (CT) all kids wear a mask and are in a cohort and do not socialize like that for lunch. Visiting is not allowed unless special permission.

I was super surprised to see the leniency.

I was too! Here in Kansas City both public and private school did virtual learning for the first 30-60 days of school. Then it's either stay at home full time (school is virtual) or a hybrid of at school 1-2x a week and then virtual school at home with your classmates. This seems to be the case for K-12 grades and yes, you must get your temp checked and have your mask on before entering the school. Masks are worn continuously (even during sports). I was completely taken aback to see his public high school let his whole family just (roam) the outside campus!! That was not allowed pre-pandemic. It's kinda like how her sister Bonnie showed her kids school would not let any parents in to walk to classrooms or come in and take pics. So if she has to bring lunch weekly, brought probably $100 worth of pop/donuts/pizza for those kids...that gets expensive fast! Does Chad not want to eat school lunch? I can believe there may be no food at home to pack a lunch that is satisfying. Chad is going to get all the Ladies with his dog! Although some how I hope his funny self earns him some good friends and people don't shun him bc of his crazy mom

Ugh I just saw on Shari's insta they stopped in my hometown. 😷 Thanks for spreading your covid around in my city that has high cases everyday and is only in Stage 2. 😡 The Frankes really tick me off with how careless they are.

She is getting a lot of comments about how irresponsible they are for traveling and how they can get the virus more than once (which they truly don’t seem to know). I can’t believe they’re traveling and sharing it with us. The virus isn’t gone, why do they think it’s over? I would understand traveling in certain circumstances of course but not for a fall break trip!

First off, why is there no heat in the school room? From past vlogs we know that it gets cold in the winter with plenty of snow so Ruby has to know that the school room will be cold and planned accordingly. You can't tell me that they don't have a furnace or some other heat source to get the house warm because that makes zero sense.

As others mentioned, was really surprised that wearing a mask isn't required at Chad's high school, especially since some of their students have had Covid (And I doubt Chad was the only one). And to see Chad's mom and siblings not wearing masks either when they've all be exposed to Covid and have had 3 positive cases in their household was horrifying.


Not at all surprising at all to find out that the founder of The Good and the Beautiful is Mormon. She's a homeschooling mom named Jenny Phillips

I'm honestly shook that Shari kept her mouth shut when she saw the cake that Julie and Abbey made for Kevin. Guess it's probably because she knew she couldn't have done better than them?

Kevin put a picture of himself on the cake that Julie and Abby made him :roll: The size of that man's ego is truly astounding. I have never seen a person so obsessed with themselves, besides fictional television characters, lol.

It also made me sad when it was Chad's turn to say what he liked best about his dad and he brought up how it's been a year since he came home and how his dad never gave up on him. It's awful how they have brainwashed that child into thinking that he deserved to be sent away to Anasazi and to believe this whole bullshit of how he's been 'redeemed' when there was nothing wrong with Chad in the first place. They DID give up on him in a way that most parents never would. Sent him away from his family and friends, interrupted his schooling, took away his sports, and told the whole world that he'd done something terrible that warranted being sent away. Had him walk around and survive in the desert for months with a torn ligament in his ankle, while they lived comfortably at home and sat there making pompous social media posts and videos to get sympathy and paint themselves as the world's greatest parents.

Right. His dad that couldn't even remember how old he was, and who said that at 15 (Chad was _14_) he should have been making decisions like a "man".
Poor Chad.
Mr. College Professor, knows everything, doesn't get that the prefrontal cortex is NOT fully developed in young teens.
He's an ass.

She had such a stank face on when Ruby was showing the cake. She can’t stand any of her siblings being given even a hint of attention or recognition. She’s like a toddler in that way.

The only thing that was really on the upside in this vlog is that the orthodontist and his staff were all wearing masks and so were their patients. Glad to see that happening after the no-mask wearing dermatogist in an earlier vlog.

As for Kevin's picture on his cake, I was almost wishing it "accidently" caught fire when they were lighting the candles. Was that wrong of me? :D I am curious as to why Shari was not there with the rest of the family sharing what she liked best about her dad. She was there earlier when Abby & Julie were decorating Kevin's birthday cake and getting praised by Ruby. Was she in her room pouting because of jealousy or was there another reason for her absence?
