Parental Tip of the Month:

If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in

Rachel Carson

  • Too Much

    At Information Children we frequently hear
    from parents who are wistful for the day when
    their child can talk, or their child can walk,
    or from parents who can’t wait for the day
    when their child is toilet-trained or when
    their child can read to themself.
    Raising a young family today can be busy.

Researchers found that students who were parented harshly in seventh grade were more likely in ninth grade to say their peer group was more important than other responsibilities, including following parents’ rules.

This in turn led them to engage in more risky behaviors in eleventh grade, including more frequent early sexual behavior in females and greater delinquency (e.g., hitting, stealing) in males.

Toilet Training – Still one of the most popular topics parents ask us about.
Essential cognitive and verbal developments are the reason why most parents find that waiting until age two and a half or three to begin training usually makes the process much easier.
