Unlike previous generations, parents nowadays don’t have to rely solely on other parents’ experiences or their parenting philosophies to parent our children.

Over a century of clinical research and recent advance in neuroscience studies have given us many child development insights allowing us to form science-based child parenting strategies.

Some of the scientific findings and recommendations are very different from what we’re used to hearing. They may challenge our long-held beliefs, cause inconvenience or make us uncomfortable. It is important that we choose parenting practice that is good for our children despite occasional drawbacks to ourselves.
