Dr. Vanessa Lapointe is a Parenting Expert, Author, Researcher and Child Psychologist. Or as I call her, Kid-Ologist. Raising, guiding, empowering, teaching and understanding children, is her thing. The science (art?) of raising happy, healthy, functional kids (how to be a great parent) is her passion, research and career. This conversation covered a vast amount of territory and as a non-parent, I found her thoughts, ideas, stories and insights, fascinating. We spoke about brain stuff, mind stuff, nurture vs. nature, genetic stuff, programming, the education system and her son the orchid and her other son, the dandelion (it will make sense when you listen). You’ll love it.
