Families Today

We are excited to bring you articles from Dr. Sparrow and Dr. Brazelton!

This webpage is part of our new benefits for TAIMH members. It features articles from Dr. Joshua Sparrow and Dr. T. Berry Brazelton’s column: Families Today.  You will also find these same articles in the TAIMH newsletter.  This column, formerly syndicated by the New York Times, appeared every week in newspapers and magazines around the country and abroad for more than 20 years. It has long been a widely read forum for the everyday as well as unusual questions and concerns about children’s behavior, development, learning, and health posed by parents, grandparents, teachers, pediatricians, and other adults everywhere who care for and about children.

These articles are part of TAIMH’s mission to provide our members and the greater public access to quality information about how infants and toddlers develop. We aim to provide service providers, parents, family members, and the community at large information about what they can do to provide infants and toddlers the support they need to develop into happy, healthy individuals.
