Introducing Parenting Tips

Parents need all the help they can get in this day and age where technology is often the most important thing in a child’s life.

Parenting skills are most often learned from our own childhood — how did our parents raise us? Then we add our own flavor and opinions to the mix, and we come up with something resembling what we believe is “good parenting.”

But our parents may have not actually raised us as well as we may think. And even if we were raised in what we consider an “ideal” home, there’s always new tips and skills we can learn to become even better parents.

So I’m pleased to present our new blog, Parenting Tips, from Don MacMannis, Ph.D. and Debra Manchester MacMannis, MSW, who will be blogging about parenting. The blog will give parents new ideas for skills and tips they can try out with their own kids and in their own family.

Don and Debra are a team both at home and at the office. Husband and wife for almost thirty years, they have simultaneously served as directors of the Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara, a nonprofit organization. You can read more about them here.

Please give Don and Debra a warm Psych Central welcome over at their blog!
