About the Author
Eight years and four children into the game, Laura Pratt lays claim to the Mommy moniker with considerable pride. In her other life, she is a writer of some experience and reputation in Canadian journalism who contributes regularly to several Canadian publications (including Canadian Living, Todays Parent
and Flare Pregnancy
). Despite the fact that she writes on a variety of topics, Laura makes no effort to hide the fact that her children are her favourite subjects. She has also been a contributor to three books on parenting: Understanding Your Teen: Parenting Strategies that Work; Raising Great Kids: The Complete Guide to Your Childs Health and Development
; and Growing with Your Child, Pre-Birth to Age 5
. Laura lives in Toronto with her husband Adam and their four kids, two cats, two guinea pigs and a particularly annoying schnauzer.
