About the Author

Denaye Barahona is the inspirational voice behind Simple Families blog, podcast and community, where she spreads her simple solutions for thriving in motherhood. A clinical social worker with a speciality in child and family practice, and a Ph.D. in Child Development, Denaye has spent much of her career working with parents who deal with challenging behaviour in children. From her on-the-job training as a mom and her professional experience, Denaye has learned how desperately all parents want to get everything right - yet in the process, have the tendency to overcomplicate, over-think and get overwhelmed. Denaye's refreshing philosophy is that simple really is smart. She advocates taking a holistic approach to helping the whole family stay well: physical, emotional and relational. That means living well by developing a healthy relationship with yourself, your family and your home.
