In my research, I am interested in understanding how parents’ interactions with their children are associated with children’s adjustment and achievement. I also focus on what makes it possible for parents to provide motivationally facilitative environments for their children.
I hope to help parents be the parents they wish to be by providing information and interventions without blame or criticism. We always acknowledge that it is challenging to be a parent today!
