Our guests this week are Kip and Mona Lisa Harding, homeschool parents of 10 and co-authors of the e-book College by Twelve. Kip and Mona Lisa, welcome to the program today!
Kip and Mona Lisa Harding:
Your family has earned a lot of media attention, including a spot on the Today Show. Can you tell us a little about your family and some of your children’s achievements?
Well, the oldest one, Hannah, got things going when she started college by age 12, and she studied math and got her degree by age 17, and then she went on to get 2 Masters Degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. And then the next child, Rosannah, followed suit, starting college by age 12. And she became an architect, the youngest architect in the American Institute of Architects. And then the third oldest, Serennah, also went to college at 12 and is now the youngest D.O.—Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine—and she’s also in the navy. And then the fourth child Heath—
Oh, Heath just finished his master’s degree in computer science at age 17. Our son Keith is 15. He’s a senior at Faulkner University, a music major. And our sixth child is Seth, he’s 12. He just transferred to Huntington College, and he’s studying history.
Well, what a great story, and thank you for sharing that today. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
