My blogging journey began in 2013 with the launch of sophieis.com. It was there I found the voice that had lain dormant for too many years, and began to carve out a new identity for myself as a writer and a mother.
With Raising Revolutionaries, I am focusing in on my passion for respectful parenting and education, and am keen to work with others who share my values and goals for children and young people.
At the moment my main priority is enabling my seven year old son to find his place in the world, and nurturing his baby brother who arrived in September 2017. This little corner of the internet serves as a place for reflection and personal growth as I continue on my parenting journey.
My experiences as a mother shape and develop my beliefs about how we can best raise our children to lead happy and fulfilled lives, building on over twenty years’ experience of working with young people as a school leader, teacher, and arts practitioner – and now an enthusiastic member of the home education community.
I am proud to have been a contributor to The Green Parent and JUNO magazines, writing about a variety of topics. You can see some examples of my published work here. I have developed particular expertise in writing about babywearing, blogging for Connecta and Integra Baby.
My latest project is a book based on the themes and ideas in this blog and I am excited to see where that may lead.
Please get in touch if you think we might have something to offer each other and we can take it from there.
