Introducing Dr. Cara Goodwin, a licensed psychologist, and mother of three, who founded Parenting Translator, a platform that aims to bridge the gap between scientific research and everyday parenting. With an impressive academic background in child clinical psychology, Dr. Goodwin decided to utilize her expertise and passion for child development to help parents access valuable scientific findings in a practical and understandable way.

How did Parenting Translator came into existence? After taking a break from her career to focus on her children, Dr. Goodwin felt the need for an intellectual outlet and realized that many parents might face similar challenges in accessing and applying the latest research to their parenting journey. Thus, she started an Instagram account and a website to provide parents with accessible, accurate, and relevant information based on scientific research.

Dr. Goodwin's qualifications are highlighted, showcasing her extensive educational background and research experience. She has not only published numerous research articles but has also worked in clinical psychology, conducting assessments and therapy for children and training parents using the latest scientific knowledge.

The main mission of Parenting Translator is emphasized: to reduce the time it takes for scientific research to be applied practically by parents. Waiting for up to 17 years for findings to be integrated into parenting practices is not feasible, so Dr. Goodwin aims to expedite this process by presenting research-based information that can be immediately useful for busy parents.

The Parenting Translator's website highlights recent blog topics, such as discussing the impact of telling white lies to children, addressing generational trauma and its impact on parenting, and tips on raising more empathetic children. These topics demonstrate the practicality and relevance of the information provided by Parenting Translator.

Readers are encouraged to sign up for the newsletter to receive valuable parenting resources directly to their inbox. Cara also offers free resource guides on toilet training and dealing with toddler aggression, which align with Dr. Goodwin's evidence-based approach.

In addition to her online presence, Dr. Goodwin is also an author. Her book, "What to Do When You Feel Like Hitting: A No Hitting Book for Toddlers," teaches toddlers safe ways to express their emotions and handle frustrations without resorting to hitting. The book's positive and kid-friendly language, accompanied by engaging illustrations, helps toddlers understand and communicate their feelings effectively.

Parenting Translator and its founder, Dr. Cara Goodwin, provide a valuable resource for parents seeking evidence-based guidance on child development and parenting. By simplifying complex scientific research and making it accessible to parents, Dr. Goodwin empowers them to raise happy, healthy, and empathetic children.
