“If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.” – Alfie Kohn

Who is Information Children?

The Canadian Society for Information Children is a non-profit organization and a registered charity, founded in 1979. We provide information, support and referrals to parents and caregivers related to the care and well-being of families with children 12 years and under. Our Parent Coach-Educators answer all Helpline calls; for areas outside of our area of expertise, we provide parents with referrals to other community organizations or resources related to the concern.

  • Research on Sharing

    Although preschoolers can appreciate
    sharing as a social norm, they don’t
    really embrace the principle until they’re
    at least 7, according to the study,
    published in the journal PLOS One.

  • The Myth of the Only Child

    As couples are starting families later
    in life and they are facing increasing
    economic pressures, more and more
    parents are wondering whether or not
    they will have that second child.

  • Parenting is Collaboration

    Parenting is a so much about teamwork,
    and more often than not, partners parent
    differently. When parental differences can
    be aligned, this collaboration provides
    opportunities for sharing, creativity, and
    understanding one another better.
