About Me

My name is Laurie Wright and I am a children’s author!

Who am I and why should you listen to me?

In case you’ve never heard of me **horrified gasp** here’s why I’m uniquely & firmly qualified to tell you everything you want to know about boosting a child’s self-confidence.

I have helped hundreds of children learn to overcome being overwhelmed by everyday situations, with just a few key phrases that become their self-talk.

Feeling heartsick about kids struggling with their confidence, I had to do something.  I write these books because I want parents and children to realize there is a solution! A chance to say ADIOS to frequent meltdowns, forever and ever amen! (not really, cause #kids, but there will be FEWER meltdowns!)

Also, I work for myself and make money because of food and bills and life.



I began my career as a kindergarten teacher, which is why all of my books have resources to go along with them. 

My Books

We love it. It is fun to read together.  I bought this book for my boys aged 5 & 7 because I thought it might help them with some of the emotional challenges they face day to day. We love it. It is fun to read together, makes them laugh and think and it has been a great conversation starter when we encounter situations where they don’t know what to do. My 5 year old uses the mantra daily, saying, “I can handle it, mommy”. I have since bought 3 more copies for friends and have recommended it to several others. A great book.” – Amazon customer
