The growth in homeschooling comes mainly from one-on-one interaction between families. Mike Smith talks about why this interaction is so important, on today's Home School Heartbeat.

    Mike Smith:
    One way homeschooling will become stronger is by growing in numbers. The more people who choose homeschooling, the greater our impact on society will be.

    Many homeschool families may conclude that they should simply concentrate on homeschooling rather than sharing the benefits with their friends and neighbors. This is a valid course, but consider what could happen if most homeschool families shared their way of life with other parents.

    Of course, some parents, particularly those committed to the public school system, may not like your advice, but the amazing growth of homeschooling over the last 10 years shows that many families are interested.

    Although many non-homeschooling families may decide to homeschool based upon objective facts, they nevertheless make their final decision to homeschool because they witnessed a successful homeschool family in action.

    One-on-one interaction is the key for successful homeschooling, but it's also the key when presenting the benefits of homeschooling to other families. Remember, you're likely to be the first and best source of homeschooling information for the family thinking about making that important choice.

    Listeners, join us next time as we continue our discussion on the promotion of homeschooling. And I'm Mike Smith.
