Homeschool Dads & Marriage

Married couple reading the Bible together

When parents choose to homeschool their children, one parent typically stays home to teach while the other parent works. Being a homeschool parent can be all-consuming if you allow it to be.

It is important for a healthy marriage and family to create time for school, time for family, and time for your marriage.

As long as your have a healthy balance, homeschooling can reduce stress and lead to a more harmonious home life.

Homeschool Dads & Discipleship

What could be a better way to teach your child how to follow God than to lead by example?

As a homeschool dad, you not only have the fortune of ensuring your child has the best education, you are also able to be the spiritual leader day in and day out.

There are many top rated Biblically-based homeschool curriculums that allow homeschool dads to teach and model discipleship along with reading, writing, science, and math.

Homeschool Dad Appreciation

A firm foundation starts in the home and in the word of God. Homeschooling can be a collaboration between moms and dads.

Sometimes the mom works and the dad is in charge of the homeschool educational plan.

Show your homeschool dad that you appreciate him with a handwritten note card, mowing the yard without being asked, or by getting up a little early to fix him a cup of coffee.

Supporting Homeschool Moms

Dads play an active role in supporting homeschool moms.

Whether dad is working all day to provide the family income or dad is coming in one afternoon a week to teach a lesson to his homeschool kids, having both parents on board is vital to having a successful home school environment.
