IMG_9989Welcome to my practical parenting blog where you’ll find easy positive ways to add tools to your parenting toolbelt, learn about yourself and your kids, and grab some easy tips on how to negotiate this whole tricky parenting thing!

I am a solo mum of three lovely daughters, living on the beautiful West Coast of New Zealand. I have been a parenting writer for national magazines in New Zealand for over eight years and love helping parents feel empowered with skills and knowledge to parent more purposefully.

I have a teaching background and specialise in Childhood disorders and intervention.

I love hearing from people and would be happy to chat about any specific issues or challenges you would like to manage better in your family, whether it’s with your new baby or your teen.

So nice to have you here!
