Could Your Teaching Approach Be Keeping Your Child from Reading: The Homeschool Sanity Show PodcastHey homeschoolers!

This is the week we take son number two to college. Here's the trick I used to keep myself from sobbing with son number one. I realized that in sending my son to college, I was realizing most mothers' dream. I had a healthy, educated boy who had the money he needed to continue his education. It was a day to celebrate, not sob. We'll see if that gets me through this transition too.

This week, we'll address the topic of reluctant readers and specifically how we may contribute to that. But first, I would love to have you rate this podcast. The fewer reviews a podcast has, the less likely someone will subscribe. It takes just a minute. I'll have the link for you at  Thank you in advance for taking the time. I so appreciate you!


Teaching Tip of the Week

is Heirloom Audio Productions. I had the opportunity to listen to In Freedom's Cause, the story of William Wallace, with my family. I can't tell you how impressed I am. And not just impressed, but captivated. If I didn't have children, I would want to listen to these Christian historical audio dramas from some of the producers of Adventures in Odyssey myself. I have a very picky 14-year-old boy. I was worried he would be critical of the CD because it would seem too immature for him. Instead, he kept telling me to play it and wanted to finish the story even when his younger brother couldn't listen with us. I had the CD in my husband's car. He took his car on a work trip and turned on the radio. He loves to listen to talk radio, but said he was so hooked by the story (even in the middle of it) that he listened to the whole thing. The music, the sound effects, and the acting are exceptional. What's even better is that your family will learn history, grow in faith, and will have fun doing it.
