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.
In most homeschool families, mom does the bulk of the educating. However, dads can get involved too. It is important for them to know what is going on in regards to the education of their children.
