Homeschooling and Dad’s are not two words that are very often found in the same sentence. More often then not new home educators and those researching home education often ask “What is the role of Dad in Homeschool?”. This question has as many answers as there are families who home educate. For some families Dad takes on teaching subjects that he is good at such as math or science. For others he takes the role of head master who over sees the home education of the family. In some homes like ours he is the hands on person (I’m too squeemish to do dissections so my Knight graciously rescue’s me and does them.). There is no right or wrong answer to the question What should the dad in our homeschool be doing? Today a few of our team would like to share what the role of Dad is in their Home School journeys.
