Excellent Articles for Parents: Issues Faced by Today’s Children

The Center for the Improvement of Child Caring (CICC) is excited to herein share with you a series of authoritative articles for parents and for people who work with parents.

As you will be able to tell from the titles of the articles, they address health and education challenges that today’s youth are facing, such as signs about whether a child is being bullied, and with how to help drug and technology addicted youth.

Each article is from a very knowledgeable scientific source or writer.

The series was originally compiled by Jennifer McGregor and her fellow medical students as a class project to create an online, go-to health and wellness resource for medical personnel and for parents. She and her colleagues have done an exemplary job of selecting some of the best and easily accessible parenting information on the Internet.

We encourage you to use and share these valuable articles as widely as possible.

Spanking, Hitting, or Whipping Children is a Very Poor Way to Gain Their Cooperation and Respect.

This Video was created by the Center for the Improvement of Child Caring (CICC) to further encourage all parents to avoid such forms of violence with their children.
