It’s very common for homeschooling moms to feel as if we spend all day telling the kids what they have to do, and then at the end of the day, dad swoops in and saves the day! And while we love that our kids are excited to see dad (or mom, if it’s reversed in your home), it can be a bummer to feel like we are the “have to” parent and they are the “get to” parent.
Does this sound like your house? It can be frustrating for mom when it seems like dad has all the fun!
With a healthy dose of reality and humor, listen to Fletch and Kendra talk about this topic out loud. They are joined in the studio by Davis and Rachael Carman, owners of Apologia Educational Ministries and parents of 7 children themselves. It’s a lively discussion you won’t want to miss!
