The Science of Parenting is a monthly radio show and podcast series hosted by Dr. Douglas Gentile and Michael Murray.
Our Mission: To promote the healthy development of children through sharing scientific evidence with parents and educators.
Our Vision: Parents and other adults have access to the scientific evidence they need to make healthy decisions related to raising children.
