Tidal Homeschooling: The Ebb & Flow of Home Education -Melissa Wiley

Brave Writer Podcast: Melissa Wiley

Today, I’m tickled purple to announce our Season 2, Episode 10 Finale. I have invited the incomparable Melissa Wiley (children’s novelist and homeschool veteran of six!) to join me for a rip-roaring big juicy conversation about home education, special needs kids, her theory of homeschooling (she calls it “tidal homeschooling”) and more.

Melissa is mom to “a small army of children” and she has been writing children’s books since 1995, including her Brave Writer featured book The Prairie Thief. In 2005, Melissa started her blog Here in the Bonny Glen to document her family adventures – it’s a favorite homeschooling blog and it’s hilarious, so make sure you head over there and read it.

She’s delightful, funny, smart, and we’ve been friends for 20 years. Enjoy!

Remember Self-Care – with Amy Milcic

Brave Writer Podcast with Amy Milcic

Join us for Episode 7 of our Brave Writer’s Life in Brief podcast!

Amy Milcic is a former mental health therapist and a homeschooling parent of five active, busy boys. She has a great blog, Rock Your Homeschool, that will add sparkle to your family’s learning fun.

I first ran into Amy on Periscope, where she starts her day by pumping up other homeschool moms (I think coffee is one of her secrets!). Today, she is going to help pump you up in your homeschool efforts, too.
