About the Author

Melanie Dale is an author, speaker, podcaster, and mother of three children from three different continents. She and her husband live in the Atlanta area. They have successfully kept their kids alive for a combined total of 227,760 hours, give or take. Melanie has appeared on numerous radio shows and podcasts and has been featured in articles in Real Simple, The Bump, Working Mother, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and the Los Angeles Times.


"This book made me feel like a better parent. Melanie's wit, charm, and sheer dedication to finding humor in every circumstance reminds us that parenting can actually be (dare we say it?) FUN. Through amusing anecdotes and helpful lists, Melanie invites us to lighten up about everything from school and feelings to friendship and puberty. A delight for any parent who needs a good laugh, Calm the H*ck Down rivals the next comedy special in your Netflix queue. Do yourself a favor--skip the show and buy this book instead. I promise you'll laugh just as hard and walk away with some parenting tips that are actually useful. Calm the H*ck Down is the permission slip you've been waiting for. And Melanie Dale--the mom friend you didn't know you needed--is the perfect one to hand it to you." --Ashlee Gadd, founder of Coffee+Crumbs
