Hello world!

I admit it. After what What to Expect in the First Year, the only other parenting book I’ve picked up has been From Diapers to Dating (which I highly recommend). My kids are now 9 and 6, and I guess I’ve been winging it. Who has time to wade through it all? Besides, whenever I pick up a parenting book now, I just feel guilty about all of the ways I’ve probably already screwed them up.

So it’s pretty ironic that I now spend my days reading child development research. As public relations director for FPG Child Development Institute, I translate research into something that I hope others will find interesting. Hence the blog–it’s my attempt to take what I’m reading and hearing from researchers and share the highlights. It’s a blend of my experiences raising two children, stories I hear from my friends, and what research might have to do with it all.
