I'm Judith-Rose Max, the founder of Happy Parenting and a mother of three fantastic girls.Despite having a natural instinct for parenting, there were times when I struggled and there were those distressing times when I felt myself turning into the parent I’d vowed never to be!

I decided to go to the experts in their field and I now work in conjunction with the experts to deliver practical parenting tips and traps. Happy Parenting empowers mums and dads with easily accessible solutions to everyday parenting challenges. You can find the experts, parenting resources and Happy Kids at www.happyparenting.com.au
