This week on our broadcast of The Homeschool Show we interview two homeschooling families who tell it like it is. There is much to learn from others who have been successful in home schooling their children. As you listen to moms and dads talk about their experience with home education, you’ll discover the many benefits such as family closeness, fond responses and freedom to explore academic interests.

Our first featured guest, the McRae family, is an African-American family with three children. She talks about how they got started, the husband’s outlook on home education, life style, socialization, teaching approaches. Secondly, the Caudle family, a large family with a special needs child talks about meeting children at their age and ability, balancing work and school, and avoiding negative influences.

We hope you will be blessed by what you hear. A FREE copy of these interviews is available for anyone who is interested. Just contact us here at thehomeschoolshow.net or call 336-924-2494.

Thanks for listening!
