Hi, I’m Claudia Cochran
Mother, Wife, Professor, and I’m also Rachel’s sister. We thought it would be nice for you to have a place where you can read some articles on parenting strategies, exclusive only to this website.
Who am I to write about parenting strategies?
Well, first of all, I am a MOTHER! My husband and I raised two beautiful kids who are now successful young adults. As young parents we faced many struggles, and I hope to share some of our strategies with you. Both my sister and I come from a pretty dysfunctional family and our goal has been to not repeat the cycle! For those of you who’ve had a similar background, be strong… you don’t have to repeat your family’s mistakes.
Also, I am a tenured college professor and have taught psychology courses for over 24 years. A few of the topics I’ve lectured on include prenatal development, brain development, parenting, critical milestones, language, creativity, psychosocial, moral and cognitive development, to name a few.
Finally, I lead a youth outreach program which seeks to address the many problems our youth face today. These include physical problems such as obesity, diabetes, kidney, heart disease, and psychological problems such as depression, addiction, anxiety, and attention-deficit problems. Many parents seek out assistance only after their child is already having problems. The best recipe to produce a highly-functioning teen is to begin at birth! A stable home life with supportive and knowledgeable parents is a must! This includes proper nutrition, nurturing, guidance, boundaries, and heaping doses of LOVE.
I hope my articles will give you some ideas to face the many challenges of parenthood. I am NOT a clinician, nor am I providing professional advice. I simply want to share some strategies that may better equip you for this beautiful parenting journey you are on.
