Ken and Elizabeth Mellor are parents and internationally known parent educators. They have been involved with children and parenting in a variety of ways for more than thirty years. Their work during this time has included parent education, social work, psychotherapy, childcare-worker training, family counselling and involvement in the custodial and institutional care of children. Their work as social workers and psychotherapists has allowed them to develop a large repertoire of simple and successful techniques that parents can use. These have made a world of difference to the many hundreds of parents who have attended the Mellors’ seminars over the years. They are the authors of several books including: Teen Stages, ParentCraft, Easy Parenting and The Happy Family.
