Dr. Kathleen Lovlie is a Board Certified Pediatrician, anthropologist, author, and blogger


Her unique "tell it like it is" approach cuts through the fluff and gets right to the truths that help guide parents through their most difficult challenges, while showing them how to live in the moment with their kids. 


Relying on decades of experience as a solo practice pediatrician, where she sees kids from birth through their teen years, Dr. Lovlie answers the universal questions that she has been asked by parents over and over again. She wrote this book to help address common concerns in an uncommon way. 


In the ever-changing world of medicine and parenting, Dr. Lovlie believes in a loosening of preconceptions and letting go of fear in order to address all the facets of your child: mind, body and soul.
