About Ms Laurie Wright
OK, so I'm not really a childhood mental health expert but the 1000s of families I have helped go from struggling with how to talk to kids about their BIG feelings to knowing the exact words to help BOOST a child's self-esteem, actually think I am.
I think it's a nice side effect of helping so many families overcome their struggles after they have been floundering around & feeling desperate for so long.
Before I dedicated myself to helping people say adios to crappy self-esteem, low self-worth, and negative self-talk, I was a mom of three with a little idea. It took a lot of inspiration & a truck-load of guts to get to where I am today.
Let's Do the Math...
So, the reason I am CALLED a specialist is that one fine day, I decided I was going to really figure this whole childhood mental health thing out.
For once, I wanted a solution..not a possible solution but a sure-shot, carved-in-stone solution.
And so I did. I gave it my all (time, money, effort) and I am incredibly proud of the results I have managed to get for my people.
My books are a quick, simple to read and use resource for parents and teachers, and they will give you the words to start conversations around these important topics.
Use these mantras, give the children in your life a BOOST!

In this installment of The Courage Chronicles, the sibling roles get a bit turned around.
Sebastien, the oldest, usually has to watch out for the little ones. It doesn’t work out that way this time, due to a lost little brother and a new tail!
Elise has been protected by her older brother her whole life, but was recently transformed into a unicorn and took on the protector role herself. This time, Elise must choose between helping her older brother sort out his new tail, and locating her younger brother who is lost - again.
The littlest sibling will always be the baby, the one most likely to wander off and to cause chaos amongst those left searching, whether that baby is human ... or dragon.
