Claire Potter is a freelance educational writer and mother to two wildly different creatures: a big, robust, outdoorsy, challenge-seeking boy and a much younger, calm, creative, home-loving girl. Pulled in different directions, Claire loves to scour her brain, her home and the outside world for ideas that lead to mini-adventures and (good) mischief to get up to with - and occasionally without! - her children. You can find a whole bunch of these ideas in Keeping the Little Blighters Busy.
After some traumatic childhood experiences round the family dinner table, she also set herself a parenting challenge: To create children who were non-fussy eaters and saw all food - not just chips and ice-cream - as one of life's biggest pleasures. So she had a big think and came up with a cunning plan. It worked and she now shares her secrets in Getting the Little Blighters to eat.
She blogs at The Quirky Parent.
