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 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.

  • Responding to Whines

    Young children often whine to get attention
    from the parents. Sometimes it is not a
    concious strategy on the part of child but rather
    a learned behaviour from the parents. Usually
    whinining occurs because the child is not getting
    what they want right away. There are effective and
    non-effective ways of getting the child to respond in
    a more positive way. Get the tips here!

  • Reading

    Reading can become a fun time to spend
    with young children. Remember to not feel embarrassed
    by animating your voice and acting out the story line.
    Read more to find ways on how to make reading fun!

  • Making Friends

    Learning to form friendships may be a
    challenge for some children, but making and
    retaining relationships is an important skill to
    have for developing social interaction and
    emotional independence.
