It got me thinking about my husband and other homeschooling dads. Here are some things I hear often.
"I can't remember the last time my husband and I had any time alone together."
"I am up late working on the computer and he gets up early to go to work. We never see each other anymore."
"He just doesn't appreciate all the time I spend homeschooling HIS children."
"I wish he had a better job. We can barely get by on his income."
Often, when I talk to homeschooling moms, they ask me for advice on how to get Dad to do more or to be more supportive. Many times, in the hustle and bustle of homeschooling a houseful, romantic life with Dad is put on the shelf and Mom focuses on the children, maybe more than she should.
So, what can we do to honor and appreciate our husbands more and express criticism less.
