Psychology Today Cry It Out

Will letting your kid ‘cry it out’ harm them for life? The answer isn’t in a blog post.

I read the Strollerderby piece and while it included an excerpt of the article, there was no mention of the study design or data collected. However, the piece did say,

In the new issue of Psychology Today, Associate Professor of Psychology at Notre Dame, Darcia Narvaez, Ph.D., writes about the dangers of letting a baby “cry it out.”… Narvaez challenges the claims of the cry-it-out advocates with new research about how baby’s brains work. (Source)

Since the Strollerderby piece mentioned this ‘new research, ’ by a bonafide PhD no less (!), in Psychology Today, I looked up what I expected to be a research article.

What did I find? Well, first, Pyschology Today isn’t a scientific journal at all. It’s a magazine full of news magazine type articles and blog posts! Nothing peer reviewed about it. According to their website:

Psychology Today is devoted exclusively to everybody’s favorite subject: ourselves. Founded in 1967, Psychology Today covers all aspects of human behavior and mental health, from the workings of the mind to the bonds between people and the larger cultural forces that drive our most intimate decisions.

Here at PsychologyToday.com we have invited the leading academics, clinicians and authors in our field to contribute their thoughts and ideas in the form of blogs — there are currently over 750 of them. The accumulated knowledge bank represents the largest archive of its kind in the world. (Source)

So, PsychologyToday.com published blog posts. Dr. Narvaes’ blog is called “Moral Landscapes.”
