Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 10, 2004
Psychologist and past chair of the National Parenting Education Network, Debbie Glasser, Ph.D., announced today the launch of http://www.newsforparents.org, the nationÂs first website dedicated solely to providing news for parents. From conception through college, NewsForParents.org features the latest national and international news stories on childrenÂs health, nutrition, education and development, as well as information related to families, pregnancy and children with special needs.
NewsForParents.org. organizes relevant news stories by category, allowing parents to read about the issues of interest to them. Updated daily, articles address such diverse topics as the benefits of pregnancy massage; the impact of calculators on the development of early math skills; new treatment options for children with Cerebral Palsy; and the latest research about the relationship between single parenting and childrenÂs behavior.
"Raising children in todayÂs world can be challenging," says Debbie Glasser. "Every day, parents make significant decisions that impact their childrenÂs health, safety, education and well-being. But most parents simply don't have the time or the resources to search for relevant articles and research reports to ensure their decisions are informed ones." Glasser adds, "NewsForParents.org is the definitive online destination for busy parents who want up-to-date parenting news and information, right now."
Additional features of the website include Make a Difference, providing tips and resources for parents interested in family volunteer opportunities and Learn Something New, which offers links to agencies and organizations that inform and support parents and families. In addition, Sound Off provides a forum for parents to share feedback about the news and its impact on their lives.
"When parents are informed, they feel more capable and competent," says Glasser. "NewsForParents.org is dedicated to informing parents about the news that matters most to them, and helping parents make educated decisions that support the growth and development of their families."
