Such a beautiful interview with Maureen Wittmann. Co-founder of Homeschool Connections and veteran homeschool mom, Maureen has encountered several learning challenges with her own children. We spend time just talking about living with and accepting what is about they way our children learn. Maureen covers dyslexia, autism, speech impediment and “drama-diva-itis.”
Maureen’s gentle spirit and vast experience is comforting, challenging and valuable for all parents about the individual needs all of our children have. She shares with us ways that she learned to focus on joy, develop patience and how to end on a positive note with our children. We wrap up with that age old question: am I enough?
