Madeleine Atchley was born third in a family of thirteen children. Her upbringing in a peaceful parenting and homeschooling/unschooling household has been a source of much good in her life and has motivated her to advocate these solutions to today's parents. This same motivation led Madeleine and her two sisters to open a free day care and parent counseling center for low income families. In 2014 Madeleine married the love of her life and started her own family. Since the birth of her son, Madeleine has continued advocating and counseling parents in the wonders and joys of peaceful parenting, while practicing it herself.
