I study parenting and its influence on children. My research ranges from the study of everyday parenting practices, like sleep routines, to chaotic family circumstances and marital discord that can precede problematic child outcomes.

I'm also curious what predicts parenting strategies, and why some children are more sensitive than others to the parenting they receive.
