What’s your resolution for 2017? Ours is to help parents in new ways throughout the year. One of those new ways is our new “Parenting Tip of the Week” series. Each week in 2017, we will be sharing new ideas, research and strategies with you that you can use with your own family or pass on to others in your community.
All About Parenting Tips of the Week
What kind of tips will you be sharing?
Everything! We know that different parents are interested in different kinds of information, so we’ll be sharing information about topics like teaching responsibility, effective discipline, and ideas to bond with your child. We’ll also have information related to early childhood development, milestones, and information on how best to support your child’s growing brain. All tips will include information for different developmental ages (where appropriate or necessary) and how you can adapt the information to work for children from toddlers to teens.
Where will you be getting your information from?
We’re lucky to have two nationwide networks of child development gurus from whom we’ll be getting this expert advice. Additionally, we’ll be sharing information from such trustworthy sources as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Child Welfare Gateway, and more. Whenever we’re sharing new research with you, the source will be clearly noted on each tip so you can be sure you’re getting the best information.
Sounds great! Where can I find these new tips?
We know parents’ time is precious, so we’re going to make these tips as accessible as possible. Not only will you find the link to the most current tip on our homepage slideshow, but you’ll also be able to access all of the tips on our Resources page. In the navigation pane on the left side of the page simply click “Parenting Tip of the Week” to see all of the tips we’ve published to date.
