    The book The Duggars: 20 and Counting!: Raising One of America's Largest Families--How they Do It discusses elements of the family's homeschooling regimen.  Though the family lists the particular book series they use for their formal lessons, I was more interested in the ways they informally educate their children.

    The Duggars give their children firsthand exposure to career skills.  When their son Josh was a toddler,

    I installed a toddler car seat [in the tow truck] so the little guy could come along on daytime towing calls, and he loved it!  We dressed him in little coveralls like mine, and he happily accompanied Daddy on calls all over the area.
    As we rode together, I talked constantly to Josh, teaching him the names of the things we saw, even the names of the streets we were crossing.  Later, I did the same thing with our twins Jana and John-David.  Soon, going anywhere in Springdale with one of our little ones was like having our own personal GPS system!
