WASHINGTON, March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in rankings and consumer advice, today announced its new For Parents blog. Expanding on health and wellness content, For Parents provides expert advice on raising a family for moms and dads, including single parents, in areas ranging from mental health to nutrition.
"The internet is inundated with mommy blogs that offer advice, but it is hard to decipher whether facts are based on research, or sponsored content masked as advice," said Kimberly Castro, executive editor of Consumer Advice at U.S. News. "For Parents will be a trusted alternative and the go-to source for all things related to parenting."
Drawing on their professional and personal experiences, U.S. News contributors write on topics such as how to Maintain Relationships in a Divided Nation, how to keep teens from Turning Smartphones into Weapons and Transitioning Toddlers from the Crib to a "Big" Bed. They include top parenting experts such as:
- Dr. Gail Saltz, clinical associate professor of Psychiatry at NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine and author of "The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius."
- Dr. Leah Klungness, psychologist and author of "The Complete Single Mother"
- Katie Hurley, LCSW, child and adolescent psychotherapist and author of "The Happy Kid Handbook" and the forthcoming "No More Mean Girls"
- John Badalament, director of programs at The Fatherhood Project at Massachusetts General Hospital
"To keep moms and dads informed – whether they're new parents or have teens entering college – contributors draw upon their deep knowledge and the latest scientific research to provide advice for tackling the myriad challenges that parents face," said For Parents Editor and father of four, Michael Schroeder.
For Parents is part of the expanding U.S. News Health channel, which includes expert-written blogs for achieving a healthy lifestyle while maintaining a balanced diet such as Eat + Run, personal stories and tips on how to live your healthiest life on For Better and the Best Diets rankings.
