I would presume most home schools are primarily run by mom. Our's is no different. Yet, I couldn't home school our 3 kids without his support.
My husband’s main involvement is praying for our school, the students, and the teacher. Many days I try to run ahead of God and do school on my own. Usually, these are the days that we have problems. Knowing Rod is also covering our school in prayer is so comforting.
He also is an insightful advisor and counselor. When I begin to question if a problem is me, the curriculum, or the students, he is able to step back and see the whole picture. He is then able to find a solution without emotions and tears.
Rod spends a lot of time with the kids. He just had a fun-filled weekend in Gainesville, FL, at the University of Florida. They participated in the college tour and took in the first Gator football game of the year. He has been our daughter's varsity's team assistant basketball coach, plays Frisbee golf with the boys, Cub Scout and now, Boy Scout leader, etc. He tries to give me some free time (sans kids) in the evenings so I can catch up with paperwork or just enjoy some quiet time.
Once, in a great while, I need to call him in as the PRINCIPAL to deal with academic shortcomings or attitude problems. Why do the kids seem to respond faster to him than me?
How is your husband involved in your school?
