Parenting with Reason cuts through the masses of often confusing and contradictory advice found in parenting self-help books to provide a rich common-sense manual on "evidence-based parenting". Grounded in the best research available, it provides parents with the evidence to back up the "tough parenting decisions" that they face.The authors, who are parents themselves, bring together their expert knowledge gained through the practice of evidence-based medicine in such areas as child intellectual and language development, childhood psychological problems and child temperament development, to look at such hot-button questions as; "Can immunisations lead to autism?" "How can I get my baby to sleep through the night?" and "What can I do to stimulate my child's brain development?" The authors de-bunk common myths about parenting, such as the notion that a healthy baby needs to be able to breastfeed at will throughout the night, or the idea that children who are adopted need specialised counselling. They also examine such issues as how media violence affects children's behaviour, how a parent's emotional disorder affects a child, what the scientific evidence is for and against circumcision of young boys, and how divorce and adoption affect a child's development.Written in an accessible, entertaining tone the book is ideal reading for new or prospective parents. The research is grounded in objective, scientific evidence which paediatricians and family health providers will also be able to utilize and endorse.Strahan, Esther Yoder is the author of 'Parenting with Reason: Evidence-Based Approaches to Parenting Dilemmas (Parent and Child)', published 2010 under ISBN 9780415413299 and ISBN 041541329X.
