Hal and Melanie Young
Fresh from a state tax audit to prove that yes, they’re all ours, Hal and Melanie Young, authors of Raising Real Men, are parents of six real boys and two real girls. They have homeschooled through seven high-risk pregnancies, three relocations, two decades, and 181 degrees of longitude.

Hal and Melanie have published articles with Homeschooling Today, Homeschool Digest, TEACH Magazine, the N.C. Family Policy Council, the John Locke Foundation, and the Heartland Institute, and have spoken at homeschool conferences from North Carolina to Arizona. The Youngs live in noisy familial bliss in North Carolina.
