Why subscribe to Parenting Translator?

Welcome to the Parenting Translator newsletter! This newsletter breaks down the scientific research on parenting and child development into information that parents can understand and use in their everyday lives. Every week, I “translate” research on different hot topics in parenting including discipline, sleep, siblings, school, development, and screen time.

As a quick introduction (or re-introduction), I am Dr. Cara Goodwin, a licensed psychologist, author, and mother to four children (currently a baby, a 3-year-old, 5-year-old, and 8-year-old). I have a PhD in Child Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a Master’s in Child Psychology from Vanderbilt University, a Master’s in Developmental Psychiatry from Cambridge University, and an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Neuroscience from the University of Virginia. I also completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Duke University. I have also published 18 research articles in peer-reviewed journals and a children’s book called “What To Do When You Feel Like Hitting” (it’s a bestseller on Amazon!).

I specialize in taking all of the research that is out there related to parenting and child development and turning it into information that is accurate, relevant, and useful for parents! I recently turned these efforts into a non-profit since I believe that all parents deserve access to this information. This means that I am only here to help YOU as a parent so please let me know any feedback, topic suggestions, or questions you have! You can also find me on Instagram, TikTok, or my website.
