About the author

Kerry Flatley

Kerry Flatley is the mother of two girls, ages 10 and 8, who have been doing chores for three years. When she isn’t busy taking care of her own chores, Kerry writes and manages the parenting website, Self-Sufficient Kids.

Self-Sufficient Kids is a community of parents striving to raise children who are independent, confident, discerning and ready for adulthood — not to mention unlikely to ask their parents to do their laundry at age 23! 

Kerry committed herself early on to helping her daughters develop these qualities. But she quickly became frustrated trying to navigate the profusion of parenting resources to find advice. Now, through Self-Sufficient Kids, she shares with her community a combination of curated third-party content and her own trials, successes and missteps as a parent.

Born in Chicago and raised in the Midwest, South, and metro-New York, Kerry and her family now call New England home. Her education includes an MBA and a certificate in financial planning.
