Dr. William Sears Profile

Renowned Pediatrician & Parenting Expert

Dr. William Sears, one of America′s most renowned pediatricians, is the father of eight children, the author of more than 30 books on child care, and an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. A pediatrician for nearly three decades, he lives and practices in California.

Sears received his pediatric training at Harvard Medical School′s Children′s Hospital in Boston and The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, the largest children′s hospital in the world. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Royal College of Pediatricians.

In addition to writing books and scientific articles, Sears is a medical and parenting consultant to BabyTalk and Parenting magazines. He is particularly enthusiastic about the Web′s ability to reach mothers and fathers where they live.

“With the advent of managed care, parents often find that their pediatrician is not so accessible for medical advice, so they turn to other sources,” says Sears. “The Web, I believe, is the modern resource for parenting information. Not instead of a child′s doctor, but as an additional resource.”

His goal as′s pediatric expert? “I′d like parents to think of me as their live-in pediatrician, easily accessible online for the most common problems they face. This new avenue for information is always current and I′m excited to give parents the most up-to-date, groundbreaking news.”

“Dr. Bill” – as his patients call him – has been a guest on over 100 television shows including 20/20, Good Morning America, Oprah Winfrey, Today Show and Dateline.

Sears and his wife — frequent coauthor, Martha Sears, R.N. — are best known for their nine most recent books, The Successful Child, The Pregnancy Book, The Birth Book, The Baby Book, The Discipline Book, Parenting the Fussy Baby, The A.D.D. Book, The Breastfeeding Book, and The Family Nutrition Book.

Books by Dr. William Sears:

Pediatrician Sears and his wife, Martha Sears, R.N., have written another handbook in the Sears Parenting Library, this time coauthoring with two of their sons, pediatricians James and Robert. The Searses are concerned about children′s nutrition, as they see an increase in obesity and other typically “adult” conditions: Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Their “Ten Ways” are not difficult to follow, although parents will possibly need to break some of their own bad habits first. Many tips deal with choosing only the healthiest foods: fresh produce, optimal carbohydrates, and the correct fats. Parents are encouraged to use each grocery trip as an educational field trip and are told how to convince their children to try new, healthy foods. Though the “Ten Ways” are for the most part easy to follow, the Searses understand that putting this information into practice will take time and effort on the part of parents. This text would be a wonderful addition to any public library′s consumer health collection. Even smaller branch libraries would do well to own it.-Rachel M.
