Do you smile in your homeschool and in your family life? Raising your kids, homeschooling, and developing relationships are all hard work. Sometimes you lose your smile… You’re not alone in this journey! Todd Wilson from The Smiling Homeschooler wants to see you have joy and smile. He talks with me about being a homeschool dad, catching a vision for your family, and delighting in your family.
Todd and his wife have eight kids who currently run the range of seasons from still at home and homeschooling to grown adults with their own kids. His mission has been to make moms laugh by talking about the realities of homeschooling and family life.
In this episode, Todd had me laughing as we talked about these topics.
- Having joy in homeschooling and smiling more
- Gauging the temperature of your home as a dad
- Assuming your role and taking responsibility as a husband and dad
- Allowing your husband to be involved in school and family life without discouraging him
- and more!
I hope you laugh too and are encouraged by my conversation with Todd!
