Parental Tip of the Month:

If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in

  • Research on Sharing

    Although preschoolers can appreciate
    sharing as a social norm, they don’t
    really embrace the principle until they’re
    at least 7, according to the study,
    published in the journal PLOS One.

  • The Myth of the Only Child

    As couples are starting families later
    in life and they are facing increasing
    economic pressures, more and more
    parents are wondering whether or not
    they will have that second child.

  • Parenting is Collaboration

    Parenting is a so much about teamwork,
    and more often than not, partners parent
    differently. When parental differences can
    be aligned, this collaboration provides
    opportunities for sharing, creativity, and
    understanding one another better.

Researchers found that students who were parented harshly in seventh grade were more likely in ninth grade to say their peer group was more important than other responsibilities, including following parents’ rules.

This in turn led them to engage in more risky behaviors in eleventh grade, including more frequent early sexual behavior in females and greater delinquency (e.g., hitting, stealing) in males.

Toilet Training – Still one of the most popular topics parents ask us about.
Essential cognitive and verbal developments are the reason why most parents find that waiting until age two and a half or three to begin training usually makes the process much easier.
