Jane L. Rankin
Jane Rankin studies topics in the development of cognitive and social behavior through adolescence and adulthood. Her latest large project is a book that describes the advice of five major parenting experts, showing the gap between their advice and findings of research and clinical practice related to parenting on key "hot button" topics. The book also discusses the factors that shape parenting advice given by media experts, including the relatively small role played by research and clinical findings, and it advocates for identification and dissemination of "best practices" for parenting.
