Science-based advice and information on parenting all in one place
Founder and CEO of REC Parenting, Dr Ana Aznar is a child psychologist, lecturer, researcher, author, and speaker. Born and raised in Madrid, Ana moved to London in her early 20s where she completed a BSc in Psychology (The Open University), an MSc in Applied Child Psychology, and a PhD in Developmental Psychology (Kingston University).
She then took on different positions as a lecturer and a researcher at the University of Surrey and the University of Winchester. Her main areas of research are parenting, family relations, and children’s socioemotional development.
Her work has been published in different scientific journals as well as in the popular press and she has presented at national and international conferences. As part of her research activities, Ana visited many, many schools and families across the UK, giving her a very good understanding of the challenges that families and schools face.
Ana is passionate about supporting parents and children. She believes that by supporting parents, we will be helping to raise well-balanced, kind, and resilient children, who are the future of our society. This is why after experiencing first-hand how parents struggle to find support and reliable advice when they have issues or doubts when raising their children, she founded REC Parenting, an online platform offering parents with reliable, expert, and confident information. All in one place with no judgement and no agenda.
Ana is thoroughly enjoying this new chapter of her life, which happened at the same time as she moved to Rome with her family. Ana is married and has four teenage boys.
