I am a wife and new mother with a PhD in Human Development and Family Sciences. While completing my degree, I realized there was not enough research-based parenting and child development information that was easy to understand for the average parent. Much of the research done by university scholars is not easily accessible to parents. With this blog I hope to provide thought-provoking and insightful information that will be useful to parents. I don't pretend to be a parenting expert, but rather a translator of research into a parent-friendly format.
