Let's face it, there is a lot of parenting advice out there! But, as psychologist and author of PsyBlog's article, 10 Current Psychology Studies Every Parent Should Know, Dr. Jeremy Dean says, "much of it is rubbish." I couldn't agree more. But this one is different because Dr. Dean has done his homework.

That is, he doesn't merely offer "random anecdote and superstition" but he actually bases his ten parenting "truths" on honest-to-goodness research studies.

Among other things you'll learn include:

  • That folks with children are happier than those without children.
  • Overly strict discipline may actually exacerbate, rather than correct, behavioral problems. And ...
  • Having your children do regular chores is a good thing.

Dr. Dean also admits that there aren't any one-size-fits-all parenting strategies that work for all kids, so it's important to adjust yours to your child's personality, temperment, and the like.

At Nassau Guidance & Counseling, our client care consultants are extensively trained in assessing your needs and finding the therapist who is best matched to your concerns, personality, and availability.
