About

Welcome to Dr. Charlotte Johnston’s Parenting Lab!

The research in our lab focuses both on families and parenting. Many of our studies address issues that arise in families with members who have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but other studies are concerned with parent and child relationships in all types of families. Several of our recent studies have examined how parents and children within families think about each other’s behavior, and how these thoughts are related to parenting choices and child outcomes.

Our work is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
