What About Dads? Kevin Swanson, Part 1

So often, we talk to, and about, moms regarding homeschooling, but what about the role of HOMESCHOOL DADS?  Do some dads homeschool? Does dad's opinion matter? How can dad be involved? How can dad support mom? How can mom support dad? How can, and should, dad lead his family spiritually?

Join Yvette Hampton as she discusses these things with Kevin Swanson, homeschool dad of 5 kids and Director of Generations – a ministry he founded to strengthen homeschool families around the country.
