Hello, and welcome to my new blog on parenting. There are many blogs for skeptics and many others for parenting, but I hope to engage those who fall into both camps. Let this be a resource for Moms and Dads who want to double check the scientific facts of a product’s claims. Let this be a place for guidance for those parents who don’t fit into traditional categories. Let this be a home to the many who like to teach their children the qualities of logic, scientific inquiry, and churchless morality.
I will do my best to give scientifically accurate information and to interpret research fairly and responsibly. I will try to understand both sides of an issue before passing judgement. I will respect that I may be wrong on matters that I don’t completely understand and will promise to correct any mistakes authored in my posts. I expect commenters to adhere to the same principles, to be open to the possibility that they are in error, and to understand that they should attack the argument and not the person.
I have many ideas for future posts. I welcome advice and tips for topics. I look forward to hearing from my visitors. Please let me know what you think about parenting as a skeptic, and what you want to see from this blog.
Hope to see you around here often!
