Getting Dads Involved in Homeschooling
Ever wonder how dads can get involved in homeschooling? Carlie Kercheval and Kirsten Joy Torrado, bloggers of iHomeschool Network, along with Devina Dabney, discuss how dad can get involved.
What Dads Can Do In Homeschooling
Although it seems that the majority of the responsibility of homeschooling falls to mothers, there are many fathers who participate in their family's homeschooling to varying degrees. From dads who help teach science or take the kids on field trips to fathers who do all the teaching while his wife is the breadwinner, fathers have many roles to choose from when a family is homeschooling.
Extending the Role
Most folks assume homeschooling dads go off to work each day while moms stay home to teach the kids. For many families, that's certainly the case. However, there's a new breed of homeschooling dads: those not satisfied being merely an observer. They don't want to come home from work and ask what Johnny learned today -- they want to be a part of that learning experience and learn it with him. These fathers are fostering a love of learning in their kids, and rediscovering it for themselves.
