Would you like a little more help from your mate when it comes to homeschooling your children? Here are some ideas on how to get Dad more involved–
- Sit down together and choose educational goals for the upcoming year–do this together as parents. Dad might have different views/goals. Maybe he’d like your kids to learn about radio transmission or construction techniques.
- Ask Dad how he’d like to get involved. Have Dad pick a subject or two that he is willing to teach your children. Perhaps he can teach auto mechanics, build a fort with the kids or be in charge of baseball practices. My husband taught our son how to play the guitar–and he has had several paying gigs!
- If Dad has a job where he can take the kids to work–let the kids learn what Dad does, the education that’s necessary, etc.
- Have Dad go on as many field trips as possible. Make field trips both a learning time and a bonding time for your family.
I’m sure Dad is a great resource–so get him involved! Maybe he’ll realize that fun learning is forever learning.
