Hello, and Welcome!
Recently, I have been spending a lot of time promoting my ideas about parenting on another site: www.TransformativeParent.com, under the term Transformative Parenting®. However, some of my earlier writings on the subject are here.
This blog offers musings on various topics that interest me, such as parenting, psychology, psychotherapy and psychiatry. All still useful I believe, but the content has not been updated in awhile as I have been occupied with other things. I hope to freshen things up here in the near future.
Please note that any suggestions are not meant to be understood as individual medical advice. (You will have to come and see me in person for that.) If you have thoughts about what I’ve written, feel free to leave a comment. (There used to be a lot of them, but a blundered “upgrade” unfortunately wiped them out.)
Have a wonderful day!
