Nancy Foster, Ph.D. was born in 1963 in Eindhoven, Netherlands, a child psychologist, and a psychotherapist. She is the mother of two outstanding children, now adults with respected careers and their own children. She conveyed her experiences and conclusions that would help them raise their children to become the best possible version of themselves. She was a professor of developmental psychology at the Radboud University and a longtime associate at a clinic for children with disabilities. She studied academically issues of learning problems, disturbances of instinct and habit in small children, and behavioral disorders of school children. She spent her whole life fighting for the rights of children and advocated the thesis that there is neither a child nor content that cannot be taught, but a specific situation and a way of acquiring knowledge are responsible for that, emphasized the importance and significance of early development and constructive learning (Bruner’s Discovery Learning). She has published several essays and research papers on the challenges of parenting, the problems of families with a hyperactive child, the connection of disorders of learning abilities and learned helplessness, discovery as a source of motivation and others. She developed private practice in the 1990s and deals mainly with counseling of young parents, encouraging psychological and motor development of children and working with children with behavioral disorders of learning abilities. An eclectic approach helps her in the analysis of family dynamics and the child’s role in it, and the transformation of maladaptive patterns. Since 2002 she is the main educator in the parents help center for the parents support with problematic children and the prevention of children's neuroses.
