Disclaimer

In my advice to parents who write in with parenting questions as well as my teleseminars, blog posts and articles, I draw on my training as a clinical psychologist, my own parenting experience, my reading in the field, and my many years observing parents and kids. I hope that my advice is helpful and inspirational to parents. The following disclaimer reminds advice-seekers that this website is solely educational in nature, and that individual parents are responsible for the use they make of all advice in this website, including Ask Dr. Markham, the newsletters, teleseminars, and any Guest Blogs.  -- Laura Markham, Ph.D.
