Insights and Encouragement for Homeschooling Dads

Updated: May 4, 2023

Allen Brokken will be speaking at the Homeschooling Dads online conference, launching June 19. This virtual conference can be attended at any time and the speakers are committed to answering your questions and equipping you to be a better Home Schooling Dad.

Lessons Learned Starting / Operating Enrichment Clubs

As a homeschooling family, it's not always easy to find clubs and activities that meet your children's unique needs. This session will discuss my experience collaborating with other homeschool parents to develop a community First Robotics program from the ground up, and taking on the mantle of an existing home school-focused theatre troupe and scouting program to expand their influence in the community.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of operating an enrichment club including

1. Understanding resources available in your community

2. Developing a Board/Core Team

3. Recruiting and managing volunteers ongoing

4. Fundraising and Budgets

How to Support My Wife in Homeschooling

My wife and I are winding down our twelve-year home school journey with just one of three students left at home. Through that time we've had everything you can think of go sideways, curriculum crashes, co-op collisions, and teenage trauma to deal with. This session will walk participants through strategies we've used as a couple to stay connected and on target to ensure we're training our children up in the way they should go as individuals, including:

1. Making personal headspace for homeschool

2. Couple Connection Points

3. Leveraging each other's strengths

4. Discerning when to lead, follow, or get out of the way

5. Addressing individual children's needs

The conference has a number of other great speakers and sessions and it will definitely be worth the time.
