Every child is different, and every family is different. Scientific evidence is informative and important, but no scientific study can provide blanket advice that will apply to every family. There is no one-size-fits all remedy for any problem. I aim to help parents resolve their unique parenting problems by (1) communicating the relevant research to parents in layman’s terms, and (2) genuinely listening to parental intuition and wisdom, to (3) develop evidence-based, effective, and innovative solutions to parenting challenges.
My ultimate ambition is to help parents establish and maintain strong and loving bonds with their children in infancy and early childhood, and to help parents and children become more attuned with each other. When this connection is strong, both parents and children benefit; parenting becomes more enjoyable and less overwhelming, and children become healthier and easier to manage. I am also committed to empowering fathers and partners to understand their role in child development, even while the child is still inside the mother's womb, and to helping them find the joys of fatherhood early on. I am committed to providing an honest interpretation of scientific research to parents to empower them in making THEIR OWN DECISIONS that are right for them and their families. I also am committed to listening to parent instinct, and helping parents find the right blend of instinct and science to guide their decision making.
This mission not only benefits mothers, fathers, and children in the long term, but is essential for nurturing a new generation that is healthier than our own, in both mind and body.
