Parenting is hard. It’s also a lot of other things, but a truer three-word sentence has never been uttered. We’re all learning as we go—reading parenting books as we encounter the challenges that make us realize why we need parenting books, and spending every evening after the kids are (mercifully) in bed wondering if we’re doing it all wrong.

Here’s the thing: The children themselves—and the milieu in which we’re raising them—change so fast that we shouldn’t ever expect to feel like we have everything all figured out. Research can help, though, especially as we struggle to navigate the parenting questions that our parents never had to address.
