I am at the same time a wife, a mother of 2 children always looking for good ideas to eat chocolate while hiding from my children, a researcher in the field of education, a bookworm and an aspirant to minimalism.
I have dedicated much of my life to education. I have two undergraduate degrees in the field, as well as a master’s and doctorate in educational science. And if there is one thing I know for sure, it is that parenting is not easy for anyone.
I believe that parents must learn to trust each other and educate their children in the way they feel is best for their particular family context. I do believe, however, that they can benefit from educational research from around the world.
As a mother and researcher, I am content to convert research in the field of education and child psychology into practical tools and useful sources of information, while remaining as objective as possible (not always easy!). Some theories will speak to you, others will not: this is perfectly normal and desirable. I will provide you with the scientific evidence and leave you free to put it into practice or not. In education, there is no universal model.
So I focus on the factors and elements that have been shown to best prepare children for their future lives as adults: respect for self and others, self-confidence, autonomy, emotional intelligence, independence, altruism, openness, resilience, well-being, etc.
I think we have a lot to learn from each other and I hope you will join our community.
