Getting Dad Involved in Homeschooling

I encourage you to find a way to get dad involved in homeschooling. Here are some tips to help.

When we first began homeschooling, my husband felt “out of the loop”. He came home at the end of the day knowing that we “did school” but not really knowing what we did, or how the girls did that day. This is different from public school because typically kids come home with homework, notes from the teacher, or graded papers. I realized that if my husband was going to understand our girl’s education at all, I would have to find ways to get him involved.

How to Create Independent Learners

Creating independent learners takes time, encouragement, and hard work. But, as our children grow they need to be able to work and learn independently. Independent learning is an important skill and one that will benefit them for a lifetime.

As homeschool parents, we are responsible for our children’s education. We take on that responsibility oftentimes when our children are young. By the time they reach middle school we are educating younger siblings and may be getting overwhelmed with the responsibility of educating so many different grades.
At this point, it may be time to start easing our children into independent learning.  This is an important thing for our children to learn. Independent learning can help them learn responsibility, prepare them for college, and helps them truly engage in the material.
