Researching Your Parental Resources
- Cross-Reference: When you find a resource which seems to have some very interesting and helpful information, it's likely that someone has made a similar post elsewhere. By using other people’s content, you can make sure that your primary sources are giving you what you need. Along with this, you could also benefit from looking for a factual backup to any major claims.
- Find Reviews: Thankfully, even when it comes to blogs, there are often reviews for the websites you use the most floating around the web. With some quick research, you will soon find that blogs like Inner Parents provide quality information, while others will make it a lot harder to find what you need. Other people’s experience is often the best way to make sure you’re on the right track.
- Be Realistic: Finally, it’s time to think about reality. Unfortunately, a lot of the content you find online will be quite obviously untrue. Claims which will make your life a lot easier without any effort at all are a great example, and there is a lot of truth in the idea that something which seems too good to be true usually is. It’s always worth keeping this in mind when you’re trying to learn.
