My Son’s a Latin Lover, Says Jonas Brothers’ Mom

They may all wear purity rings, but at least one of the Jonas Brothers is a veritable Latin lover!

Interviewed on Homeschool.com Radio, the superstars’ mom, Denise Jonas, reveals what her home-schooled sons’ favorite subjects are.

     CAPTION: “It’s so valuable to help your kids learn real things that matter,” Denise (right, with Kevin, Joe and Nick) says.

“Boy, with that passion, Kevin just excelled at it,” Denise tells us of her son's Latin mania.

Kevin loves literature and he loves Shakespeare. He also loves etymology, which is amazing. And he loved and he studied Latin,”  says Denise of her eldest boy (left), now 21.

“My husband and I disagreed on if he should take Latin or Spanish. And I said, ‘He has a passion to want to do Latin. Let him do that,'” she tells tells to host Rebecca Kochenderfer.

Frankie [8], our little one, is in love with science. Nicholas [16] loves English. And Joseph [19] – I don’t know that he has any fav- orite.”

Denise also discusses the home- school curriculum she favors for her musical prodigies.

“That would be Accelerated Christian Education, which is Lighthouse Christian Academy. It works because of our travel schedule. And for my older boys, online stuff is just fabulous,” she says.

But Denise’s exclusive chat about home-schooling doesn’t end there. She also discusses what she likes most about it.

“It’s so valuable to help your kids learn real things that matter,” Denise (right, with Kevin, Joe and Nick) says.

Hangin' (when not studyin') with mom: “It’s so valuable to help your kids learn things that matter,” says Denise, with (l-r) Nick, Joe and Kevin.

“Everything’s an advantage. For instance, it’s great that we can take our kids to a mid- night screening of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience be- cause we home- school – and we can sleep in ‘til 10 o’clock!”

Shot in 2008 during the band’s “Burning Up” tour, the 3D flick opens February 27.

In the past three months alone, the Jonas Brothers have headlined at The American Music Awards, rocked Times Square on New Year’s Eve, sang with Stevie Wonder at the Grammys and performed for then-President George Bush during then- President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration festivities.

(A few days later, incidentally, they hid in a White House closet, where – much to the girls’ delight – First Daughters Sasha and Malia Obama turned them up as the grand prize in a scavenger hunt.)jonas-bros-movie-poster2

And today at 2:00 p.m. ET, their mom, Denise, drops in on Homeschool.com Radio to chat about how and why she and husband Kevin home-schooled their sons – and how that edu- cation contributed to the pop idols’ success.

But before that, the boys them- selves, Nick, Joe and Kevin – whose new flick, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, opens Feb. 27 – phone in a shout-out to their “fellow home-schoolers” and Homeschool.com Senior Editor Rebecca Kochenderfer.
