Parenting For Brain uses evidence-based empirical research and neuroscience studies to help parents promote their children’s brain development to reach the best possible outcomes.

Our mission is to help parents raise a new generation of children who are healthy, happy, successful, and well-adjusted without relying solely on anecdotes, opinions, or doctrine.

Many people have strong opinions about parenting, mainly because of their experiences or beliefs.

As parents, we all want the best for our children, but it is sometimes difficult to find accurate information, and therefore, we rely on wisdom handed down through generations.

While some traditional parenting beliefs are right on, a lot has been debunked by science.

Scientists and psychologists now know much more about child development than ever before. With the help of the latest research, we can understand the nuts and bolts of the best parenting practices.

We can now confidently choose parenting strategies that have been proven good for our children, both on the inside (mental health) and the outside (physical health).

Using science in parenting is not about achieving perfection. It’s about gathering as much accurate information as possible before making decisions and tradeoffs based on our own circumstances.

Learning never stops in life or parenting.

An open mind allows us to learn and grow every day.
