Mique Provost runs the successful website, Thirty Handmade Days, and she is the mom to 3 amazing children.  The first half of our discussion we talked a lot about raising her teenage son with Autism, and the grueling decisions she’s had to make as an autism mom.  We discuss the early days of realizing he wasn’t progressing like other kids, to his teen years, and I even got emotional as we discussed the challenge of giving adequate attention to her other children that don’t have special needs.

The second half of our conversation was about so many topics, including kids and cell phones. She told me about a great app to oversee your kids usage. We also discussed that we can’t monitor everything, and how we can teach our kids to have their own internal filter. From home organization to kids working around the house, to the Santa talk about half way through (in case you have littles around, you might want to plug their ears!). I hope you enjoy this chat as much as I did!
