Today’s parents are very busy and our world is changing at a faster and faster pace.

We get that! 

What children need to grow and flourish in today’s world may differ from what was needed when we were raised, and although experts may be keeping up with these changes, busy parents often don’t have enough time to locate the current information and evaluate what the experts are discovering.

This is the place that does it for you. We combine our expertise in child development (see about us), with the expertise of other professionals in the field.

This is an interactive site. The postings will reflect your questions and concerns. We invite your comments. Each of the nine categories will provide you with information and a place to ask a question or share an idea. We hope you will do so often.
