About Elizabeth Crary, M.S.

Elizabeth Crary

Elizabeth Crary, a parent educator for more than 20 years and the mother of two grown children, is the author of such well-respected books as

  • Without Spanking or Spoiling: A Practical Approach to Toddler and Preschool Guidance,
  • Love & Limits: Guidance Tools for Creative Parenting, and
  • Pick Up Your Socks . . . and Other Skills Growing Children Need!

She has also created children's books to help kids of all ages develop social skills and handle their emotions.

She teaches parenting with North Seattle Community College and independently. Frequently requested as a speaker for parenting and professional groups across the United States and Canada, Crary has a gift for presenting solid, practical information in an enjoyable way.

A theme running through her work is "the more ways a person has to handle a problem, the more likely they will find something that will work well for all involved" whether that person is a grownup or a child. This philosophy is evident in her Dealing with Disappointment: Helping Kids Cope When Things Don't Go Their Way. In this book she offers parents a variety of ways to handle children's disappointment and teach children to eventually calm themselves.
