Do homeschooled children choose to homeschool their children? And if so, why? These are some of the questions raised (and answered!) on this the second of a two-part podcast all about 2nd-generation homeschooling. We interview Mrs. Amy Becker and Mrs. Lydia Bowman, two homeschool graduates who are now happily homeschooling their own children. They discuss with Greg about passing along the vision without pressure. Some of the reasons they decided homeschooling was the best educational method for them and their families include:

• ability to select different programs for different needs
• tailoring teaching to learning styles
• increased flexibility
• family closeness
• and more!

If you love homeschooling and want to see it continue from generation to generation, then be sure to tune in for part 2 of this 2 part podcast outlining some excellent reasons to choose home education and how to pass along that love for home education to the next generation.
