Dr. Johnston has retired and The Parenting Lab will no longer be conducting active research. Thanks again to everyone for your participation and help over the years!

Over the years, the research in our lab focused both on families and parenting. Many of our studies addressed issues that arise in families with members who have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but other studies were 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 was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
