"Abby has read everything a first year law student is supposed to read, but she can't put together an Ikea dresser" (paraphrasing)
I call BS on Shari reading "everything a first year law student has read". This is the first year book list for UCLA law:
https://curriculum.law.ucla.edu/Guide/BookListFirstYear
Bullshit, Ruby. And isn't lovely that all the boys from Utah have "set their hearts on being humble"? What about you and Kevin? Any humility there?

Shari also didn't know what they wanted her to spray round up on yet she has read all those law student books!

Yeah, I felt sorry for Abby too when she said I just come in the bedroom to sleep!

poor abby had her own blanket and pillow on her own bunk but shari told her to take them off because it didn't match the room.
she legit said she was going to through them out the window.

I do not think shari is a evil or bad person as a lot of you make her out to be, but she does have very bad habits and traits about herself and the problem is, she doesn't seem them as bad. I honestly think shari would benefit from some sort of therapy where she is taught to take other's feelings into consideration and learn to be less controlling.
I was looking for this exact comment because I was going to say something similar! To add to your point though, Shari had a stuffed horse on her bed, so why can't Abby have one on hers?!? Shari needs to get off her high horse. It must be hell living in the same house as her.

As a side, we see most of what Shari spends her time on (mostly moving about the house ordering siblings to do tasks for her) and I do not see when she could have dedicated enough time to reading an entire year of law school material that is written well above her apparent critical reading skills. She may have finished one book at best. And with minimal understanding or comprehension. Ruby is such a liar.
I felt so bad for julie-she was so happy with her friend. The only thing abby said was that she should clean her mess. Abby is transforming in a mini shari.

Shari also didn't know how to wash her car and wondered if spraying water on it would ruin the paint. She was genuinely surprised when the water didn't get all the dirt and bird poop off.

I feel even worse for what Abby is being turned into, than what she currently has to endure. Ruby was physically in the kitchen filming the kids baking and Abby stuck her head in to snap at Julie that she better clean it up. Isn't that Ruby's job? I would have gotten yelled at for trying to reprimand my sister in front of my parent. It just goes to show you that Ruby probably has zero responsibility or authority at this point. I think Shari has been retired and Abby is in charge of the house now. Shari was nowhere to be found on surgery day and Abby was responsible for cooking breakfast for everyone and getting Eve up and ready for the day. Yet somehow Shari gets all the credit.

I was here for this exact comment! I could see everyone commenting on Shari and I thought well that’s just Shari and that’s what she’s like but what got me in the video was Abby’s attitude to Julie and her friend like wtf? What a bitchy thing to say!! Sure you might be secretly pissed off at Shari for making your shared room into her room but don’t take it out on Julie who was “playing” quite happily with her friend doing something nice for the neighbors you just look like a mean cow!!

Funny as hell miss know it all, stuck up couldn’t figure out the difference between a crack in the sidewalk and the edge of the grass! I laughed my ass off. She has zero common sense. Abbey is such a mean girl! If you pay close enough attention she actually glares at her siblings with evil eye darts a lot! Especially when it comes to food..or snacks. Like someone got a bag of candy from a fan or something and she said to Ruby you have to share that with us too..don’t they mom?! Ruby said yes then she squinted up her mean girl eyes at the other kid..like ya, now what u gunna do? It’s truly awful the shitty behavior she is learning from Shari.

does anyone rememeber a couple months ago that vlog when they were eating breakfast and julie didnt want to try it. Ruby was saying its just eggs and sausage mixed together you eat them separately all the time, and then shari grabs the fork and begins shoving it into julies mouth and julies tries to resist it. Chad was telling shari to stop and even said "now you made her cry" and Ruby just watches for a few seconds (not putting the camera down) and eventually says "ok ok ok stop now" or something and then it cuts to ruby hugging julie who was crying. Shari proceeds to say shit like "if i ever cried over food" and stuff and ruby laugh and jokes with her saying "ohhhh we couldnt even look at you without you getting mad at one point!" and it becomes a whole laughing joke. If i did that to my sibling i would get slapped. Shari has no respect for Julie or anyone to be honest and Ruby doesn't do anything about it and thinks it all a funny joke. Poor Julie.

It's so sad that Julie always seems the happiest when she is spending time away from her siblings (especially Shari) and Ruby. Also, how darn cute was it that she made treats for their neighbors.

Right back to decorating by hiding everything in the closets. What about shelves with books and mementos? I put stuff in my closets I need but don't want to see. When this channel started, Shari was a reader and had books displayed in her room. Silly me, I guess she still is since she has read all the 1L required reading. I bet she understands it as well as she understood her AP class. She seems the type that can memorize for a test but doesn't have breadth or depth of knowledge and can't apply anything.

And I guess they don't want their pets anymore. Which girl said they don't want their animal cages in their rooms but I guess we have to have them? :x

“the room would look so much cuter without the animal cages but...”
it made me laugh when she said that she should get a “cute garbage can” for their room. I’ve never heard someone describe a bin as “cute”

Not sure if its a question of wanting the pets but more that they give that little room a bad smell fast unless you clean them constantly. The snake might not be smelling so fast but the hedghog is.

Jared should take lessons from Ruby. Even though today's vlog was a sponsored ad, Ruby made it look kind of interesting. She shows the products without it looking like doesn't want to do it. I wouldn't buy a thing Jared promotes.

Shari admitted in a video that at her new school she only gets good grades because she memorizes the answers and doesn’t understand them. It’s in the video about going to a private school she posted when she first started going there.

Just two observations:

1) How can Ruby demand maturity to her 14-year-old son when finds extraordinary that some mechanical pencil came with leads? "It took me years to figure it out". Well, then you're not pretty clever, Ruby. What I mean is that it's obvious you need to buy leads if you're going to use a mechanical pencil. Buying 30 mechanical pencils (I've seen them doing that in some back to school shopping) is a waste of money and it's not the point of using this pencils.

2) A high-schooler doesn't need a TI calculator, let a lone a new TI-84 plus with color screen. About 130 dollars for a calculator! The only time I've seen a 16-year-old student needing a TI-84 plus is in the IB Diploma Programme. Anyway, I'm pretty sure Shari already have one, at least a TI-83. I remember her demanding for one in a video, and her parents buying it for her. So, who is going to use that calculator? Abby? Julie? To young for it.

And finally, an extra observation. I like to watch english speaking youtubers to practise my hearing English, but I trully find this family vocabulary super simple. Ruby tends to use very short sentence, with very simple verbs and expresions and a lot of "like...".

And they were obviously already cleaning up when she said that :( Hopefully Julie will be a good influence on Eve. Shes still young so there is hope.

All students at the high school I attended used TI calculators. I'm not sure if they were 83 or 84 but they definitely did not cost $130. I think I got mine for $50 at the most. You just need to know how to shop. Not only that but they were also provided at school. We just had to have our own at home. If you want to practice English don't do it by listening to this family. Lol.

There are normal TI Scientific calculators for 20 dolars, or 30, or 40. The one she's showing in the video is 150 dollars if you look at the offical TI website and 155.98 at Walmart.

When I was in high school we needed the big ti graphing calculator. It was a requirement. We would fail the class if we didn’t have one.

It may be pricy but I started using a TI-84 in 10th grade. It was an accelerated honors course but everyone needed one for basic 11th grade math courses. My 8th grade class had a class set that we used to get our toes wet in graphing. But lots of homework required them so you needed your own. I’m sure they made exceptions for kids who couldn’t afford them. Now, 10 years later, I have used it for every class since. I needed it for my graduate statistic course this summer. Once you buy one, it’s basically good for life.

Same. We got ours and learned how to use them in 8th grade and I used it through college. A good (relatively) cheap investment (compared to iPads, etc)

Our kids needed TI 83 or TI84 calculators in 9th grade (high school freshman) taking Algebra 1. Just had to buy one and found it at Walmart for $88
They use these graphing calculators all through high school and most of college unless they take really advanced math classes.

I’m in Australia and they are a requirement here too.
Also in high school (starts Year 7 or 8), doesn’t matter if public or private, you have to bring your own device that fits the requirements of the school. For my son who started in Year 7 he needed a 2 in 1 laptop. In Year 10 he will need the graphing calculator.

The only time I've seen a 16-year-old student needing a TI-84 plus is in the IB Diploma Programme. Anyway, I'm pretty sure Shari already have one, at least a TI-83. I remember her demanding for one in a video, and her parents buying it for her. So, who is going to use that calculator? Abby? Julie? To young for it.

And finally, an extra observation. I like to watch english speaking youtubers to practise my hearing English, but I trully find this family vocabulary super simple. Ruby tends to use very short sentence, with very simple verbs and expresions and a lot of "like...".
People do need graphing calculators in middle and high school. They are able to perform functions that scientific calculators cannot. $130 isn't bad for a calculator to last you 10+ years of school 🤣
