We draw on our own independent research, literature reviews, training in Psychology, and parenting experience to provide information on the Practical Research Parenting blog, podcast, products, and services. We sincerely want to help other parents. The Materials include suggestions that are general in nature and do not cover all possible uses, actions, precautions, side effects, or interactions, nor is the information intended as advice for individual problems or for making an evaluation as to the risks and benefits of a particular form of treatment. Individual parents are responsible for how they use and interpret this information, and for considering their specific family needs. The text that may be displayed on the website at any one time may contain only a portion of relevant information.

Every effort has been made to accurately represent information and its potential. Even though the parenting suggestions portrayed are evidence-based, and/or theoretically beneficial, there is no guarantee that you will see positive results. Examples in these materials are not to be interpreted as a promise or a guarantee of outcomes.

Your level of success in attaining the results claimed in our materials depends on many factors, such as parent and child personality, likes, dislikes, temperament, family situation, availability of support, family history and other factors.  Since these factors differ according to individuals and families, we cannot guarantee your outcomes.  Nor are we responsible for any of your actions.

As affiliates of certain products and services we may receive compensation for recommending and promoting products/services linked to from this website.

Materials in our products, services and our websites may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of outcomes.  You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.  They use words such as “anticipate”, “estimate”, “expect”, “project”, “intend”, “plan”, “believe”, “hope” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with a description of potential outcomes.

Any and all forward looking statements here or on any of our sales material are intended to express our opinion of potential outcomes.  Many factors will be important in determining your actual outcomes and no guarantees are made that you will achieve outcomes similar to ours or anybody elses, in fact no guarantees are made that you will achieve any results from our ideas and techniques in our material. Satisfaction guarantees specific to each product are detailed on the individual product pages.
