Dr. Phil Update

For those who may still be wondering, I never got the call to go on Dr. Phil. But Charles Lowers at Considering Homeschooling was invited to be a part of the studio audience. He provides a recap in the October issue of his magazine.

We heard that Dr. Phil was planning a "homeschool" episode, so we applied to be part of the show. Even though our family does not watch television and I have never seen Dr. Phil, I did not expect much more than a hit piece on homeschooling - which was accurate...

[T]he mantra that Dr. Phil kept coming back to was his fear that homeschoolers would be ill-equipped to compete in the real world.

You can read the rest of the article here. This article does not mention when the show will air, but I probably wouldn't watch anyway.

Update: From the comments, Love2Learn Mom tells us that her friend was in the studio audience and the show will air Oct. 27.
