Caroline’s debut novel May B. is a natural for Brave Writer fans: a fast-paced adventure novel in verse, set on a Kansas prairie homestead with a strong young protagonist. It is poetry, history, geography, and adventure, rolled into a compelling story we can’t help loving and learning from! She will show us how books like May B. help us see beyond our place and time.

The LIVE webinar (“Light Up Every Subject Through Historical Fiction”) will be Tuesday January 8, 2019 at 7:00 PM ET.

December in the Alliance: Partnering with Your Teens for a Great Future

Brave Writer Homeschool Alliance December 2018

I’ve got a treat for you!

My adult daughter, Johannah, is joining us in the Homeschool Alliance during the month of December. She is a life coach who works with young adults to help them dream big and find their way into purpose-filled lives! She’s bringing that skill and energy to our Alliance members so that parents can use coaching tools to help teens find their way into big bold lives!

December is a great time to discover the Homeschool Alliance. We’ll talk about the upcoming semester and you can listen to all of our pre-recorded webinars and audio lectures as you wrap gifts, stuff a turkey, or decorate a mantel. The Homeschool Alliance has four years worth of material ranging from parenting to school subjects to extra curricular activities to self-care. Truly: there’s no place like it online for homeschoolers.

Join us for what we like to call: “Grad School for Home School!”

Here’s what one of our members says:

The HSA could create a sea change (and is) in the the homeschool community. The volume of wisdom, non-judgmental support and the joy of learning for homeschooling parents that is encouraged is a game changer for any new or old homeschooler. The HSA requires us to “go first” without us even realizing it at first.

By merely participating we practice what you preach for our homeschool. From our learning and support blooms a healthy homeschool from the center outward. It influences home education, family dynamics, individuals and society the same way healthy parenting does. The HSA is truly a gift and I know it’s a labor of love for all of you.

—Stephanie

Nov. 2018 Homeschool Alliance Theme: How to Homeschool so Kids Will Listen

Brave Writer Homeschool Alliance November 2018

It’s the age old homeschool dilemma: how do I get my kids to do what I need them to do and to care about what I think they should care about?

Join us this month as we get “back to basics” with a parenting classic: How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish.

Solving the dilemma starts with helping our kids deal with their feelings. As Faber and Mazlish so aptly put it—when kids feel right, they behave right. Yet “helping our kids deal with their feelings” is not always as simple as it sounds. At its heart, it requires that we accept all their feelings, even the ones that make us angry or anxious. Yikes!

We’ll dive deep into how to navigate the inherent conflict of needs that exists between us as parents and those endearing yet oh-so-frustrating young people we care about so deeply and passionately. Along the way we’ll discover the five skills to engage cooperation and the attitude that helps children thrive (and what attitude defeats them!).

Have a particularly sticky problem you are struggling with? Join now to get a chance to submit your cooperation bugaboos for Julie, Stephanie and Jeanne to address in our monthly webinar.

October in the Homeschool Alliance: Romantic Relationships and Homeschooling

Homeschool Alliance theme Oct 2018

The demand on each one of us as home educators is staggering—big, rich, full, deep. Our love for our kids knows no limits! On the flip side, however, may be a loss of some of the romantic intimacy that characterized your “pre-children” life with your partner. In October’s Homeschool Alliance webinar (Oct. 8th), Leslie Gustafson (Marriage and Sex Therapist AND homeschool mom veteran) is coming to share with us about how to sustain the intimate connection in your primary relationship.

I’d love for you to join us! We’ll be discussing questions raised by the community (anonymously) in our webinar. I know this is a delicate topic and could feel intimidating to tackle. On the other hand, many parents confide in me their pain and challenges in this arena. How you feel in your marriage or romantic life impacts your well being which in turn impacts your homeschool.

I want you to thrive. I want me to thrive! I look forward to sharing Leslie with you (one of my college friends!). Hope you’ll sign up and stay!

Sign up for the Homeschool Alliance now and start your 7 or 14 Day Free Trial. You may find that this is the best homeschool investment you’ve ever made! Check us out to see.

September in the Homeschool Alliance with Leslie Hershberger

Sept in the Alliance 2018 with Leslie Hershberger

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get inside the heads of your children to understand how they see the world? It would make helping them learn so much easier!

My friend and colleague, Leslie Hershberger, is coming to the Homeschool Alliance to work her magic. She is a professional relationship consultant! She works with families and corporations to help everyone get along more peaceably, to gain empathy, and to understand the varieties of ways we each function.

Leslie is an international speaker and writer. She’s an expert on the Enneagram and Integral Spiral Dynamics. I’ve invited her to join us to talk about “Three-Centered Living.” How do we engage our minds, hearts, and bodies to learn? How do we cater to our children’s natural inclination to one style of learning over another?

If you’re stumped about how to reach that one child, this is the perfect month to unlock the mystery!
