Yvette is the publisher of happychild.com.au. She lives in Sydney with her husband, their three boys,a rescued Siamese cat and two goldfish (one called Susan). Launching this website was the culmination of Yvette's passion and dream to make a difference to children's wellbeing and happiness. Yvette is a regular parenting commentator on Channel 9 on Mornings, where she shares her interest in nurturing children's social and emotional skills and talks about all things 'parenting'.
One of Yvette's driving motivations is to persuade educators and policy makers that teaching emotional intelligence skills should be a fundamental part of the school curriculum. She knows there's no magical formula for good parenting; but love, warmth, reflection and good intentions go a long way.
