WelcomeUnderstanding Our Sons, Engaging Their Hearts & Minds, Homeschooling CAN be a Great Adventure

How should we homeschool boys? Anyone who has ever been a parent to a little boy can tell you that they are generally louder, more energetic, and more physical than little girls. So when we homeschool boys, why do we think we can use the same teaching methods that we use for girls?

Traditional educational methods can be pure torture for boys. “Sit still!”, “Stay in your seat!”, and “Please be quiet!” are phrases often directed at our boys while class is in session in a traditional school setting.

As I write this, one of my sons is somersaulting across the living room. The other one is running a lap around the house. Our mornings are filled with dancing and silly voices. You might think we were training our sons to be in a circus – but these are helpful techniques we’ve found in homeschooling boys.

When my husband and I decided to start homeschooling our sons Homeschool-Your-Boystwelve years ago, our plan was to recreate the traditional classroom setting in our home complete with desks, textbooks, and every other kind of educational tool that we could get our hands on. We soon realized that if we wanted to be successful homeschooling boys and instilling a love of learning in them, that we needed to become experts at updating our teaching methods, sometimes on a daily basis.

Active learning activities for boys are so much more successful than traditional ones. Boys have energy to burn and need help directing that energy in proper ways. There are many innovative ways for keeping boys busy as you homeschool. Fathers also play a big role when homeschooling boys. And what kind of day would it be if you didn’t also give your boys outside fun sometime during the day as well?!?

This site is filled with information and activities for homeschooling boys that I have discovered along the way. My hope is that these ideas will be useful to you as you travel down the amazing and exciting road of homeschooling boys!

It takes flexibility, ingenuity, and patience to homeschool boys, but I sincerely hope that I can help you to feel more confident when undertaking this rewarding adventure.  Grab a cup of coffee, take a look around, and feel free to ask me any questions you may be pondering.  And remember, armed with the right set of information, raising boys can be fun!
