CHANNEL INTRO: Amy is an online Agony Aunt giving positive parenting advice about building diverse families, improving family relationships, & improving behaviour through gentle & respectful disciplinary strategies. The Ask AMY channel was launched in January 2018.
DESTINY CALLS: Amy’s cosy corner of the internet started by a total quirk of fate! Amy is an Australian single mother by choice who unwittingly dropped into 21st century technology by accidentally launching a family channel www.youtube.com/LuckyFortune8Family which now has over 103K subscribers & 51M views.
BACKGROUND: Amy had an only child for nearly 9 years before giving birth to 4 more children within 2.5 years. In addition to her own 3 sons and 2 daughters - which include 2 sets of twins - Amy fostered 20 children over 7 years, including same sex twins and sibling groups - before her own boy/girl twins were born. Before being formally, medically retired by the Medical Assessment Tribunal (in March 2014), Amy worked in child care (4 years), created/delivered professional development level courses in behaviour management philosophies & strategies (3 years), plus worked in public schools (2 years), and the child protection sector (8 years). She also has directly relevant, personal experience of the topics discussed; including donor conception, foster parenting, pregnancy loss, parenting multiples, & raising large families. Whilst Amy is permanently, medically unable to resume her prior profession, she believes her years of raising children plus working with child clients and their families enables her to provide useful, generalised information in YouTube's pre-recorded format.
DISCLAIMER: Like anything else you find on the internet, Amy's ADVICE SHOULD NOT BE SUBSTITUTED FOR YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT OR THE GUIDANCE OF PROFESSIONALS WHO KNOW YOUR PERSONAL SITUATION.
