Dads Who Homeschool

Historically, the bulk of homeschooling has been done by mothers. But more fathers are taking over, often due to financial pressure or major life crises. Come hear tips about how dads can assist, co-teach, or embrace the full load of teaching our children.

Support groups often have the opportunity to assist families who are experiencing difficulty in their homeschooling.
