3 Ways Dads Can Help Moms Homeschool

Despite the giant “S” on your wife’s shirt she needs your help, Dad. Here are 3 ways dads can help moms with homeschooling.

I recorded this episode without any notes so it’s very raw and a top-of-mind monologue. I hope it helps you to encourage your wives throughout the homeschool year.

Give Her Your Time

One of the things every homeschool mom feels like she doesn’t have enough of is time. Taking the kids to the park for the day or doing some things around the house so your wife can plan is a great help. Maybe you need to take a day off from work to do this. It’s worth it. Find creative ways to give your wife more time to homeschool.

Provide Input

When your wife asks your opinion about something that pertains to homeschooling she really wants to know what you think. Saying, “Whatever,” or, “I don’t care,” devalues your opinion. If there are conflicts later on around curriculum or other homeschooling choices you’ve just undermined your position and her confidence.

Pray For and Affirm Your Wife

Sometimes as Christian husbands we forget to pray specifically for our wives. We pray for them in a general sense but not specifically. Don’t forget to affirm your wife too. Let her know she’s doing a good job and that you appreciate how hard she works to homeschool your children.

Dad, what are some ways you help your wife? Mom’s what are some other ways you think your husband can help you?
