Top 10 Lessons From TV Dads, Part 1 – HIRL Episode 44

HIRL-Episode-44Top 10 lessons from TV dads? What could we possibly learn from a bunch of characters on television?

Join Fletch as he takes a trip into television history and shares his top 10 lessons he has learned from the TV dads he was raised with. This episode was recorded straight from the Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention in Nashville, TN.

While Kendra was busy meeting other homeschool parents and presenting her sessions, Fletch pulled lessons from Mike Brady, Charles Ingalls, Homer Simpson, Ward Cleaver and Sheriff Andy Taylor. Along the way, he also interviewed several homeschool parents on the floor of the TTD Convention and asked them, “Who is your favorite TV Dad and why?”

There are lessons on this podcast episode for both husbands and wives, so tune in and enjoy the first five dads from Fletch’s list on this episode of Homeschooling In Real Life, To Go!
