The Importance of Reading

I invited 3 experienced home education moms to talk about the importance of reading. In this lively discussion we talk about why we read, the benefits of reading and whether a child who struggles to read can experience the same benefits.

Marinda Erwee is a trained educator who ran her own early childhood development centre. She was also part of the Babygym Institute.

Chantal Malan has a post graduate degree in counselling psychology. She was head of the Career Centre at the University of Stellenbosch Business School until 2005, when she decided to exchange the counselling of students for the life of motherhood.

Karen Badenhorst is a homeschool mom for the past 16 years. She has 3 children which are now happy grounded young adults. She is a remedial therapist and is part of the Dynamis Institute as one of the rooted families.
