In episode 55 of the Raising Mums podcast, we talk about what you can do if your husband is against homeschooling.
This episode was inspired by a question from a mama inside our Homeschooling course for Muslim Parents, Launch Your Homeschool.
Sister X said,
“I have spent the summer researching home education including the course. I am thoroughly convinced home education is best and that I am very passionate and capable. I’ve bought so many books….
Now my husband has become very anti-home education. He believes it’s best, however, he wonders what the point is if we aren’t definitely going to home-ed up to university (I’m saying we start with primary and see how it goes). He wonders how are our kids going to cope with the real world. Also, he cannot differentiate it from being a SAH (stay-at-home) wife, so he expects I would be doing more than if I was at work e.g. the house should be spotless, there should be three robust meals etc however if I was at work he doesn’t mind if I can’t keep up with the housework.
He thinks the sacrifice isn’t worth the benefit basically and would struggle to value my contribution when the school can do a good job for free. He is also worried that we have no family support.
I’m at a loss of what to do and not sure how to convince him. I’m just disappointed really, I know I can’t pursue it further without his agreement, but am heartbroken not (to) try home educating when I am so devoted to the idea.”
