Overview

Parents today see tons of opinionated chatter online about how they should be raising their children. Trusting the research of experts cuts through the noise of subjective opinions, providing facts that remove the 'what ifs' from many parenting decisions.

Dr. David Barner is a professor of psychology and linguistics at the University of California San Diego. Barner has been published in several higher education publications. His studies fields include conceptual development, linguistics, and thought.

In the Science of Parenting, parents learn how to rely on scientific evidence to steer their approaches toward a number of hot-button parenting topics, including school, play, diet, and sleep.

"Parents should take on a role that's more like a gardener, providing the basis for the child to grow safely and explore rather than that of a carpenter who tries to shape the child with a particular outcome in mind."

Dr. Alison Gopnik, developmental psychologist
