"Being Prepared: Childcare Back-Up Planning"- As a working parent, you've worked hard to establish reliable childcare for your children. What do you do, however, when there is an unexpected illness or issue that impacts the care you have so carefully set up? In this article, you'll find tips to guide your planning for the inevitable bumps and disruptions in your childcare game plan.

 

"Helping Your Child Succeed in School"- Many studies show that parents' involvement in school is more important to their children's academic success than the parents' level of education or income. In this article, you'll learn how by showing interest in your children's education, you can spark your children's enthusiasm, showing them that learning, both inside and outside of school, is enjoyable and rewarding.

 

"Middle Schoolers and Cliques"- Cliques can form at any age, but the energy exerted on trying to fit in during one's middle school years is exceptional. It's virtually impossible for you as a parent to control your children's membership in a group, but you can support them in navigating their social networks and position within a group. This article offers guidance on how to help children if they are in a clique, clique leaders, or victims of cliques.
