Now, on to the introductions: I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom to a wonderful almost 2-year-old boy. Prior to my mommy life, I studied Human Development and Family Sciences and graduated with my PhD in 2008. During grad school, I realized how little of the important academic research on child development and parenting actually reached the hands of the people who need it--parents! The goal with my blog is to "translate" some of this great research into a parent-friendly, easy to read format. I don't claim to be a parenting "expert." I'm learning as I go, just like everyone else, but I do think knowing the latest research is helpful.
Please check out my posts and let me know if you have suggestions for topics you'd like me to discuss. Thanks for visiting!
