About the Author
"BONNIE HARRIS, M.S.ED., is a parent educator, counselor, and coach who received her master's degree from Bank Street College in New York City. She founded The Parent Guidance Center and has designed numerous parenting workshops, including her popular When Your Kids Push Your Buttons, which inspired this book. The mother of two grown children, she lives with her husband in New Hampshire.
I spent my first fifteen years after college in New York struggling to become a famous actress. I did some theater, a tiny bit of film and a lot of television commercials. But fame eluded me. Actually steady work eluded me. Meanwhile, my husband and I renovated a brownstone ourselves, built a timberframe house from scratch (I built a 30 ft. high fieldstone fireplace) and renovated and built two more homes after moving to New Hampshire. But after my first child was born, I found that what I loved doing most was figuring out what goes on in a child's mind and talking to other parents about raising children. After fifteen more years of teaching and learning from parents, I had to write this book. Getting it published was a daunting pie-in-the-sky dream. But now that dream has come true. One thing after another fell into place, and I got an agent and a publisher within two months. How could I have been so lucky? Now I have the opportunity to tell what I know and believe to thousands perhaps millions, and I am in awe of this opportunity."
