About the author

Aspiring contemporary ballerina, commercial poet, grateful wife and mother.

My husband told me that if we want our son to thrive in this world, all we need to do is build his self confidence. So that's how I started reading parenting books, and reached the latest research discoveries in interpersonal biology and brain development.

I am above all, convinced of the imense potential every child has and their absolute innocence;
I know from experience that raising kids can often feel quite differently, and challenging.
I am convinced that the way to turn that potential into peaceful family lives and well balanced kids - is both intuition and science (and patience).

I write lyrics since aged 8, when I had no money to buy my mother gifts; I really wanted to create joy in her heart, so I started dedicating poems to her.

Pack this all together and you get : How to save the dragon, Instrument book for teaching impulse control to children.
