NovaTopic: Body + BrainBody & Brain
Premiered On on PBS


Parenting is full of obstacles that can be hard to navigate—even without a toddler yelling at your face. There’s no instruction manual, which means discerning fact from fiction and reasonable from ridiculous can be maddening. That’s where Parentalogic comes in, a digital series brought to you by NOVA and PBS Digital Studios. Subscribe to the YouTube channel to receive alerts when new episodes launch.

Join Parentalogic hosts, pediatrician Alok Patel and comedian Bethany Van Delft, as they dive into topics nearly all parents face—from pregnancy to poop, fevers to tantrums, and preschool to puberty. Personal, informative, and witty, the digital series explores what science has to say about the questions that keep parents up at night, turning trial into triumph.
