Keeping informed as a parent is important. To be truly informed, however, requires quality news and advice about children.
Finding parenting information is easy. Finding quality information is not as easy. Part of the challenge is understanding and recognizing good parenting information. This is where Momma Data comes in. We go behind the headlines and the sound bites, behind the studies and the claims. We explain and explore what parents read and hear about kids.
OUR GOAL is to empower parents to stay truly informed and become more savvy about parenting information. To this end, we support, educate and encourage parents to seek out and thoughtfully digest sound information about parenting, children’s health and well-being.
Hi! WELCOME TO MOMMA DATA
When I started Momma Data more than ten years ago, I was mom to three young children and had encountered my share of parenting news and advice. I was also a psychologist and researcher who loved digging through studies and data. When I first became pregnant, I worked in a research lab by day and caught up on parenting books and articles by night – and longed for more nuance, more accuracy, more science and data in what I call the Parenting Media, the loose collection of articles, books, websites and other information directed at parents. After having two more kids, I set out to do something about it – to bring more data to parents, to the momma so to speak. That’s when Momma Data was born.
I believed then and continue to believe now that parents should have accurate, nuanced and evidenced-based information. If you like your parenting news and advice backed by science and nuance (and accurate!) then you’re in the right spot. Let’s make a difference – one piece of advice, one article, one study at a time.
