Meet the Author

Michelle received her undergraduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology in 1993 and a masters degree in Communication Disorders in 1995 from the University of Texas at Dallas. She completed her internship at Medical City Dallas Hospital and earned her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in 1996 from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Her most memorable case of therapy involved "Kay" - a two year old found a the bottom of a swimming pool. Seeing the dedication of Kay's mother to the recovery of her severely brain damaged child, Michelle developed an early and profound respect for all Mothers. In 2000, Michelle took a break from working to start her own family, having three girls in five years. Immersed in all things "Mommy", Michelle decided to write a book dedicated to people just like her: confused, amazed, exhausted, guilt-ridden, and baffled on what-to-do-next. Journey with her as she writes with empathy ("..while I write this very sentence, my child is trying to tear her crib apart in a raging, screaming, fit..."), dedication to getting tough ("Throw that guilt monster out the window, girlfriend!") and a professional eye for what really works in toddler discipline. Teaming up with Dr. Rita Chandler, a Nationally Certified expert in behavior, Michelle decodes the technical aspect of steps to improving problem behavior, but stays devoted to teaching discipline techniques with the emotions of caregivers in mind.

Very reassuring and refreshing - I was rolling laughing! The author candidly talks about things that are hard to find in other books and relates stories that make you feel understood. The one about passing her plug was hilarious and there's also one about a pink bathing suit that makes you horrified thinking about her embarrassment. I thought I was the only one suffering through some of this and I darn sure don't want to tell other people about it. This book makes you feel so much better, and even if you have none of the ailments, just reading it is so fun. I think the difference with this book is that she doesn't just tell stories to be funny. She gives actual advice. Her language seems "real" like you're actually talking to a friend. And there IS stuff in there that'd I'd never even heard of and she makes it very funny!
