About the Author

TODD WILSON is the founder of Familyman Ministries and is a writer, speaker, dad, and former pastor. Todd is author of Help! I'm Married to a Homeschooling Mom, The Official Book of Homeschooling Cartoons, and Lies Homeschooling Moms Believe. His articles have appeared in various magazines, including Christian Parenting Today, Men of Integrity, and Stand Firm. Todd and his wife Debbie, along with their seven children, spend several months of the year traveling the country encouraging moms and dads. When they're not traveling, they reside in Milford, Indiana.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Dad, I applaud you for giving your family the privilege of being educated at home, and I sympathize with your plight of being married for a homeschooling mom. However, if you expect your wife to successfully pull off this homeschooling task, then she's going to need your help. Homeschooling is a tremendous undertaking. It can crush a woman who is forced to carry it alone. Homeschooling is at its best when the husband and wife shoulder its weight. Working as a team doesn't make it easy-that would be wishful thinking-but it does make it easier. Together, you can do almost anything. And with God's help and strength, you can do all things (Phil. 4:13).

More About the Author

Todd Wilson and his beautiful, dream-fanning wife have eight, sometimes adorable, dreamers of their own. Together, they travel the country in a big RV encouraging parents. They make their home in Northern Indiana and go out for pizza and breadsticks most Sunday nights. Todd is also the founder of Familyman Ministries, whose purpose is to remind YOU of what's most important. Todd has authored many books and speaks all around the country.

There are those rare things in life you get a taste of and long for more as a dad: Old Spice scented baby wipes, home-cooked meals, floors you can walk across in the dark barefooted and Todd Wilson's book.
With the wealth of encouragement and instruction available for homeschooling moms, it's great for dads to get a nod too. With humor, self-reflection and some terrific cartoons, Todd manages to boost up even the most road-weary of dads.
The book is terrific and the cartoons alone are worth the price of the slender tome! Besides, short chapters work great for dads whose lone "quiet time" usually comes at reflective "bathroom breaks" while a kid or two is pounding on the door screaming, "Dad, come out something's on fire!"
Todd "You-Da-Dad" Wilson hilariously manages to point out all the craziness that goes on in the homeschooling house, but never forgets dad has to keep his wits and keep on keeping on. You don't have to be a homeschooler to get encouragement from his book, just a dad willing to try his best for his family.
Laugh at his bungles and smack your forehead a time or two when you see yourself in them too. Above the laughter, there's a deeper message that dads are in their role for a reason and it's their responsibility to keep the household afloat. Leaks will happen, wet shoes are fine and an occasional iceberg may appear on the horizon, but in the end it's all about the floating.

As a homeschooling wife I recommend this book for what it does:It really helps my husband understand me and my job better, but it doesn't do anything else.

If you're struggling or feeling overwhelmed, understand that this book addresses branches -make sure you deal with roots first. Two common root problems with homeschooling are not addressed here, and based on the content of this book, might need addressing in the author's home.

The first is educational philosophy. The author and his wife appear to be homeschoolers mimicking school at home (known the homeschool community as "school at homers"). For an outstanding argument why it is not a great idea to homeschool this way, "I Saw the Angel in the Marble" by Chris and Ellyn Davis is the best place for every single homeschooler to start. If you buy only one book on homeschooling ever-that's the book to buy. It compares the educational approaches and the pros and cons of each while addressing the underlying philosophies of each and how they affect your life.

The second is child training. There was precious little as to the training of children in life skills like chores. It is critical for a homeschooling household that every single person contribute daily to the upkeep of the home. Every child with normal physical and mental development should begin training for chores by age two. That's right-two. This book seems to only focus on Dad helping Mom, rather than Dad and kids helping Mom. Dad should be helping Mom train the children to have a sense of personal responsibility and a strong work ethic while helping with household duties. Chore charts, family work projects, teaching organizational skills, and the like are missing.

Format: Paperback
What a gem of a book! My wife (very wisely) bought this for me at a homeschool convention. Even though it is a short and easy read, this book packs an incredible amount of good advice between its covers. Todd "You 'da Dad" Wilson has a knack for speaking to the homeschooling dad in a way that creates empathy for the homeschooling wife in a funny but succint way. He really makes you feel like he's been there with you and knows your struggles, and he offers great suggestions in a way that makes me want to really help my wife.
A great book to give to others who are homeschooling -- I'll need another one to replace mine when I wear it out from reading it so many times.

Todd is one of the funniest writers I have ever read! He has a true gift and luckily we are all able to benefit from that. I bought both of Todd's books for my husband and ended up reading them too. I found myself laughing all through the book. We now get his weekly emails, and even though it's for dads, moms get a lot of it too. It is refreshing to have a voice out there helping dads (and moms) be the best they can be. So if you want to have a laugh and read something that makes you think about the priorities of raising your kids, read Todd's books. You won't be disappointed!

This book was excellent and spoke right to my heart. Todd used words and prases that actually kept me awake without all the religious jargon and Charlie Brown's Teacher's voice (wah wah wah waaaaah). I highly recommend this book to all Homeschool Dads. You 'da Dad.

I've read Help! I'm Married to a Homeschooling Mom and it is a great book for men who naturally don't think of the obvious. It has made me more aware of help that my wife needs both physically and emotionally as she is buried in homeschooling day in and day out. It has also helped me with some practical things I can do to assist in the homeschooling effort that I hadn't even considered. It's an easy read (for those of us that hate to read) and will be a huge blessing to your family, particularly your wife. I'd recommend the book to anyone. It's definitely worth it.
