Could I introduce you to a new parenting resource: Dr James Best’s Parenting For Today?
But first, I’d better make a full disclosure. Dr James Best is a good pal of mine, he’s the husband of my dear friend Benison O’Reilly with whom I co-wrote the first edition of the Australian Autism Handbook and also Beyond The Baby Blues.
Benison, James and I all met up at an autism parent group many years ago when our boys were all doing early intervention. Benison and James’ son Sam is now a very tall 16 year old and my dear son is 20.
James is a Sydney GP with post graduate qualifications in children’s medicine and he’s also a respected GP educator. James is one of Australia’s leading paediatric doctors and has had many articles in both the medical and mainstream press.
James’ new website is www.drjamesbest.com and there he’s posting a series of videos about children’s development and health.
The website also looks at what we parents bring to our families as individuals and how that can affect how we parent.
Here are the episodes that James had uploaded so far:
You can find the Dr James Best Facebook page here.
I’ll still be asking James for parenting advice when I’m 80 and my kids are in their 50s!
Have any of your children had a tantrum recently?
