Welcome!


Hi and welcome! 

I’m so excited to finally be publishing some posts  that are based on some of my own thoughts and ideas but mostly, lots of research and best-practices that my professional work and personal passion have led me to. 

My goal is to simplify all our best, most recent and high quality knowledge about child wellbeing, into practical steps for real parents so that we can raise children who thrive.

wholeheartedly believe that all parents are doing their best. I’ve studied parenting and early childhood for about 10 years now but it wasn’t until I became a parent myself that I understood the true complexities of being a parent. That being said, there are certain approaches and principals that result in happier, healthier children and that is what I want to share with all of you. It’s not about judging or blaming or changing anyone’s family. It’s about sharing simple ways to help families enhance what they’re already doing well.

We know the three most important factors in child wellbeing and creating “resilience” in children: 

-a warm and responsive caregiving relationship;

-a safe environment;

-good nutrition. 

(Watch a great clip about resilience from Harvard Here). Safe environments and good nutrition are very important topics as well and I plan to share some practical ways to go about ensuring those things, too, but the real goal here is to focus on sharing ways to promote a good caregiving relationship and help parents support the social and emotional development of their children so that their children will be able to build the secure foundation and the emotional resilience that will allow them to develop to their fullest potential.  

I’ll be posting something new about every week so make sure you check back!

I’m so excited to share some of the great stuff out there on parenting and early childhood. This is an exciting time of wonderful research and thought and I truly believe that we can raise a new generation that will change the world for the better.
