About Dr. Mary Manz Simon

Dr. Mary Manz Simon has built a career out of carpools and soccer games. Under the umbrella of practical parenting advice, her books have sold more than two million copies and are available in nine languages, her daily radio program is heard on 200+ stations, and her magazine articles and national convention presentations reach thousands more each year.

Dr. Mary Manz-Simon“I think being a parent is terrific,” she says. “Life in the Mommy Zone can be exhausting, discouraging, and challenging, but there’s nothing that compares to helping a baby grow up to become a hopeful, visionary, contributing member of society. Of course, that happens only after cheering on the sidelines of countless T-ball games and having numerous discussions on the value of making a bed.”

It’s her advice on these everyday issues that resonate with parents, teachers, and all others who care about children. After earning bachelor’s, master’s, and doctor’s degrees in education, she entered the world of parenting by giving birth to three children in four years. This real-life experience, coupled with her significant academic credentials, speaks volumes to readers and listeners.

“Parents today don’t have the built-in support systems of previous generations,” she says. “That’s why it’s so important to find peer parents who share your values, veteran parents who can help you look down the road, and experts who can help you can see how everything fits together.”

    Mary, How is your daughter? How is the baby? Was it born on Sunday?

  6. Dear Dr. Simon, Just wanted to thank you for the new Christmas book you sent us at Faith Lutheran Preschool. I was so blessed to be able to speak with you a few years ago at a Lutheran Educators conference and am blown away that you still remember us fondly and send these new issues to our school. Blessings on your and your family for a wonderful Christmas! Enjoy those grandbabies!
