Share Article

Parenting may not be easy, but thanks to a new style of TV show available on the Internet and from video-on-demand services like iTunes, parents can successfully tackle child-raising with expert guidance, greater confidence and a smile. Because kids don't come with an owner's manual, The Parent Code (http://www.parentcode.tv) is designed to be an online parenting resource that provides quick, timely tips and advice on everyday questions and challenges facing parents of young children and teens.

Parenting is too important to be taken seriously.

    Recognizing today's families are busy with little time to spare, The Parent Code offers short, fast-paced, information-packed episodes each week, giving parents an online TV show they can watch anytime, anywhere. Parents watch the show online at http://www.onnetworks.com or download the show for free from iTunes and watch it on their iPhone or video iPod while waiting to pick up their kids from school or on the computer or Apple TV while preparing dinner.

"The Parent Code is focused on giving parenting advice that parents can use to save time and money, make their family's life easier, and keep their family healthy and happy," says show host Tonya Kerr, good-natured (and sometimes frazzled) mother of three. A veteran television journalist, Kerr was the former host of Houston's KPRC-TV's "Family First" show and contributor to Houston Family magazine.

"With the show, we want to have a little fun and keep parents laughing, too," Kerr says. "Parenting is too important to be taken seriously."

The Parent Code covers children's topics from all stages of child development, including the "five-second rule" and baby sign language to video game violence and cheap chic shopping for kids.

The Parent Code is part of ON Networks' collection of smart, short-form entertainment that can be watched anytime, anywhere and on any device. ON Networks is the largest provider of original, high-definition content for iTunes.
