Erin Leyba, PhD

Erin Leyba, PhD, an individual and marriage counselor, specializes in helping parents of young children. In addition to writing her popular blogs, she speaks often to parenting and childcare groups.

Most of us enter into parenting with the naive notion that we're going to do it better than our parents. We become the parent we wish we had, which is, of course, not the parent they need. Parenting is hands-down the hardest job on the planet. Each child is different and no manual comes at birth. You learn, if you're lucky, as you go along. Research statistics paint a picture of parental conflict and stress with decreases in happiness due to the ongoing pressure of child rearing. Gratefully, there is much wisdom and practical help available now. In the end, parenting is about building a relationship through compassion, creativity and being fully present in the moment.
