Kia Ora. Hello.
My name is Miriam. I’m a mother of 2: Big Girl (teen) and Little Girl (primary school). I write and teach and generally obsess about all aspects of family life. All of it: child development, social policy, education, and baking.
Before parenthood, I taught child development and early education at Colleges in both the USA and my native New Zealand. I have also worked with little children in both places, and I pretty much reckon that Play will free the world.
At the moment I’m engaged in research & study at my local university, doing something of a deep dive into the impact of parental screen use on the parent/infant relationship. Also, I am the keeper of the castle and a creator of fine salads. I garden, read, write, and learn.
