“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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
