We are so fortunate to have Families First, a fabulous parenting education resource, so close to us in Portsmouth, NH. I am surprised, however, by how few families actually access their services and go to their workshops. Please take a moment to go to their website, check out their calendar for upcoming events, sign up to get updates via email http://www.familiesfirstseacoast.org/enewsletter.html, and then choose a date, bring the kids and GO! You won't be sorry.
Use an open ring (it could be a binder hoop or a Mason jar lid), or a dowel or stick from the woods. Attach brightly colored ribbons and enjoy while running or dancing or swinging in the breeze!
Best Websites for Parenting Info
Some of what you find when you search for parenting info online is not consistent with child-development research. TheChild & Family WebGuide from Tufts University selects parent-friendly sites that have the highest-quality child development research. Covers many topics under the categories of Parenting, Education, Child Development, Health and Medical.
