I didn't, but now I wish I had. I wonder if there's a way to find out when they'd be airing the rerun?

There was a pretty in depth discussion about this episode on the forums here in the days that followed.

Basically, the parents went to work full time and had their girls enrolled in online school so they could stay home and take care of the house and their three younger siblings. It was a big nasty mess. The parents put everything relating to house and home into the hands of the older girls, who still had to get their school work done.

I did see the episode. The type of schooling was not the problem it was the parents.

Homeschooling is a big responsibility. Some people, though they mean well, are not up to the task. I feel sorry for the parents in the story because they wanted to have more than they were capable of supporting in their home. I understand they wanted to have it all. But, if they were not ready to live on the one income or unable, they should not have tried to homeschool their kids. Or, the yougner ones could have gone to day care/preschool and the older ones stay home.

Sometimes you CAN'T have everything you want.
