Ready to Learn from PBS Kids - this site offers advice for reading with your children, finding appropriate PBS programming, and general parenting tips
Parent Resources section of the national PTA Web site - contains pamphlets, handouts, and parent guides that are well worth printing out and exploring in detail. There are four resource subsections: "Student Achievement," "Safety," "Media & Technology," and "Health & Wellness." Each section contains a wealth of information, including important and timely topics such as bullying, childhood obesity, cell phone safety, inhalant abuse, and helping kids perform well on tests. In addition, parents can access the various discussion boards, and view/print articles from the last three years of Our Children magazine.
