Read the Research

Scientific research is an unbiased approach to understanding the world around us. Many sources can take original research and present it in a way that may distort, oversimplify, under-simplify or even misrepresent the true findings of a study.

In today’s society information comes quickly, in abundance and from a variety of places. It is important for parents to be critical of what they are reading, ask questions and search the source for themselves. It may seem scary at first but reading the literature personally can help you feel empowered and allow you to truly become a leader in your child’s development and feel confident in the choices you are making for them.
