“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 others on most any matters 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.

  • Parenting In A Digital World

    ” It is the personal paradox of our time:
    never before has there been so much
    opportunity for families to plug in and
    at the same time disconnect.
    ” Catherine Steiner-Adair, EdD

  • Mindful Parenting

    Mindfulness is a term used to describe a way
    of striving to be more aware and present in
    our day to day lives. We live such hectic lives
    that being mindful helps us to slow down and
    absorb the moments in a deeper way than we
    normally might.Applying mindfulness to parenting
    can bring many benefits to the parent/child relationship.

  • Understanding Temperament

    At Information Children workshops we talk
    a lot about temperament. Understanding more about
    who your child is and how they react to the world around
    them can help you become a more effective and empathetic
    parent.
