Arthur Lavin, M.D., F.A.A.P., is a pediatrician who’s been in private practice for over 20 years and is also an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at Case Medical School in Cleveland, Ohio. He was trained and then taught at Harvard and MIT in pediatrics and the specialty of newborn medicine and has published original research in such journals as Science. He is also the coauthor of Who’s the Boss: Moving Families from Conflict to Collaboration (Collaboration Press, 2006), a book presenting a new paradigm of parenting with specific guidance on managing the most common challenges of parenting young children such as toilet training, sibling rivalry, and discipline.

Lavin’s professional experience includes training by T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. and Mel Levine, M.D. He has served on a number of national committees of the American Academy of Pediatrics, helping to create standards for community pediatrics and to draft manuals for teaching American pediatricians to care for children with special health care needs. In 1998, Lavin accepted an invitation by the United States government to participate in an overseas health partner mission. In addition, Microsoft showcased Lavin’s office, Advanced Pediatrics, in its launch of Office 2003. He is married and has three children.

Susan B. Glaser, M.A., is an educational psychologist and early childhood educator with more than 30 years of experience in supporting families of young children. She graduated from Case Western Reserve University, where she worked with noted educator Jane Kessler, Ph.D. in a school for children with special needs; she received her master’s degree from John Carroll University.

Glaser served for 15 years as the Director of Early Childhood Services for the Jewish Community Center of Cleveland. She currently works as a national consultant, traveling the United States and Canada to assess early childhood centers and present workshops for parents and teachers. She contributes to the parent Web site of the national association of Jewish Community Centers.

Glaser is the chairperson of the Infant/Toddler Network of the Coalition for Alternatives in Jewish Education (CAJE), a national group devoted to furthering and improving education. She is also a member of the Universal Pre-K Committee of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Her articles on parenting appear in newspapers and national publications in the field of early child development.
