You’ve tried everything, but nothing works

Finding that nothing works even after trying everything you read on the Internet can be frustrating when you’ve spent hours searching for parenting information.

Not every problem can be self-diagnosed and self-treated.

Information can be a valuable starting point in identifying problems, but sometimes professional help is necessary to determine the root cause and resolve issues.

Finally, while we at Parenting For Brain work hard to provide the most accurate info, please do not rely on information found on the Internet to diagnose or treat mental or physical health problems, even if the information is “medically reviewed”. 

The only safe way to help you and your loved ones is to seek professional help.

Only competent professionals should diagnose, treat and guide you on your medical problems based on information unique to your situation. I encourage you to seek out this expertise and guidance. 

The Internet is an excellent starting point for learning about issues, but nothing can fully substitute professional assistance.
