PARENT EDUCATION

There is much to learn and be concerned about as a parent. Children’s growth stages effect them as well as outside influences from friends, school, media and your community in ways you’ll want to understand. The resources here will make you aware of many. Some may not be applicable for your child/children. As relevant research or ways of thinking about these topics come out, I’ll update this information. My blog posts will add information and food for thought so you gain perspective and are able to develop your own point of view as to how you want to approach your particular situations or concerns.
