Just Thinking...Articles by Dr. Schroeder

Dr. Jim Schroeder, St. Mary's Center for Children Pediatric PsychologistThe following articles are written by Dr. Jim Schroeder, a member of the pediatric psychology team at St. Mary's Center for Children in Evansville, Indiana. (See Dr. Schroeder's introduction to the articles)

Dr. Schroeder states that "the topics will be many and varied. The common thread is that they all are pertinent to our lives as parents and as human beings...but also raise questions that we must address so that our children, our families, and our community can thrive and prosper. My hope is that it will be useful in making decisions for our children that are based on our own values and cutting edge science."

We hope you will enjoy and benefit from Dr. Schroeder's candid thoughts in the monthly articles linked below.
