I have just found this article about neuroparenting and my book (which is currently on special offer if you use code PALCM17).

As Macvarish pointed out in her book, there are many reasons why a scientific approach to parenting creates undue stress for parents — namely, mothers. Firstly, as Mecking also wrote in her op-ed, current research in neuroscience is not wholly applicable to infant’s brains, and within the scientific and medical community it’s unclear just how much is really understood about early brain development. Mecking mentions that there’s a tendency for scientific theory to “overrule” other ways in which knowledge is acquired or applied — say, through intuition and experience.
