The question is not whether you’ll change; you will. Research clearly shows that everyone’s personality traits shift over the years, often for the better. But who we end up becoming and how much we like that person are more in our control than we tend to think they are.

Thinking About Kids is a place to explore thoughts about families, kids, parenting, and the wonderful puzzle that is scientific psychology. Unlike my other professional writings, I use this blog to ponder about life in general and science in particular from my perspectives as developmental researcher, as a mother, as a wife, as a citizen, and as a statistics teacher. These are my own thoughts and do not reflect the positions of my department or institution.
