Contents

I have literally just put down a magazine article by Robert Epstein, an evidence-based look at 'What Makes a Good Parent'. Soon I will go home, to my two young sons. Might my access to the relevant research, alongside a general background in understanding the minds and behaviour of others, elevate me to 'Dad of the Year' status? I seriously doubt it. Instead, I will blag, botch and bumble my way through just like everybody else.

It's always good to seek a wider sample though, so Aidan Horner and I thought it would be fun to talk to the children of psychologists, and the psychologists themselves, about whether profession had an impact on parenting (see p.758).

Elsewhere there's the usual mix of news, views, reviews, interviews and more, alongside our online offerings (websites, apps, podcast). We have so many 'children' these days, and of course we love them all equally. But it takes a village to raise a child, and we need your contributions more than ever. Please don't wait to be asked: see our website or drop me a line.
