I try to notice and pay attention to recurring themes that come through my inbox. Recently, some of these have had a common thread–spouses being on separate pages when it comes to homeschooling.
I am fortunate to be blessed with a husband who not only supports our family’s homeschooling endeavors, but also agrees with my unique educational philosophies.
But what should you do when this isn’t the case?
Here are a few messages I’ve received recently from readers:
“What happens when husband and wife are on two different pages when it comes to education? I would like to homeschool, but my husband wants to send our son to public school. Would you address that at some point on your blog? What to do when the house is divided?”
Another reader asked:
“I have been wanting desperately to homeschool and my husband is totally against it. Any advice to advocate homeschooling to him?”
So that’s our question today:
What are the options when one spouse wants to homeschool and the other doesn’t? Has anyone been in this situation and dealt with it successfully? What was your experience?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
