Parenting For Brain is devoted to empowering our readers with science-based and easy-to-understand parenting information.
We focus on evidenced-based empirical research and neuroscience studies that can help parents promote healthy brain development as well as best outcomes in their children.
Our mission is to help parents raise a new generation of children who are healthy, happy, successful and well-adjusted without relying on only anecdotes, opinions or doctrine.
Parenting is a subject many people hold strong opinions about usually based on their own experiences or beliefs.
We all want the best for our children, but sometimes accurate information is hard to come by and therefore, we often rely on wisdom passed down through generations.
While some traditional parenting beliefs are right on, a lot have been debunked by science.
Scientists and psychologists now know much more about child development than ever before. From latest psychology research and neuroscience discoveries, we can understand the nuts and bolts of best parenting practice from a scientific point of view.
Parents can now confidently choose parenting strategies that have been proven to be good for our children, both on the inside (mental health) and the outside (physical health).
Behind Parenting For Brain
Hi, I’m Pamela, the creator and Chief Editor of Parenting For Brain.
My quest for science-based parenting started when my daughter was going through the terrible twos.
As a confused and overwhelmed mother, I received a lot of child rearing advice from friends and family. It was hard to know which theory was right and what strategy was good for my child.
So, I had to use a lot of guessing and gut feeling to make my decisions. But deep down, I felt that there had to be a better way to find good parenting guidance.
After studying volumes of research, I came up with a strategy to handle my toddler’s tantrums and published it in my first parenting book. Turning Tantrums Into Triumphs became #1 Amazon Bestseller, and that started my journey in writing science-based parenting advice.
My background is in Electrical Engineering and Business Management. Going from engineering to management and now to researching & writing parenting topics was quite a career change. Though my education is not directly related to the topics I write about, it allows me to grasp scientific concepts and sift through hundreds of studies quickly.
Like most parents, I don’t have all the answers. But through my research, I hope to help parents create healthy and happy homes. I also want to help parents who’ve had traumatic childhood break the cycle and do it differently with their own children.
Every child deserves the opportunity to have optimal brain development and reach their full potentials. We, the parents, have the power to make it happen.
