Allison Dixley is the founder of thealphaparent.com - a controversial and candid website looking at parenting from an unapologetically supercilious throne.
A former nursery nurse, Allison has two first class degrees in Early Childhood Studies and Law respectively and has written articles for numerous publications including Practical Preschool, Early Years Educator and Nursery Education. She has two children.
She is currently studying for her PhD after winning a covered scholarship from The North East Doctoral Training Centre. Her doctoral work, in collaboration with Unicef, is based at the world renowned Parent-Infant Sleep Lab at Durham University where Allison is examining the nocturnal behaviour and physiology of breast and formula fed infants.
