Parental Tip of the Month:

“The dominant problem with parenting in our society isn’t permissiveness, but the fear of permissiveness. We’re so worried about spoiling kids that we often end up over controlling them.”  Alfie Kohn

  • 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.
