Parenting Newsletters Provide the Right Information at the Right Time
An online collection of "just in time" parenting newsletters provides developmental information, answers to common questions and concerns, and other age-appropriate tips for parents of children from birth to age 5. Each newsletter covers a specific period in a child's life (usually 1 to 3 months at a time) and is short (no more than four pages) and easy to read. Some information in the newsletters is State specific. All newsletters are in English; some are also available in Spanish.
The newsletters are produced and distributed by the National Network of Extension Specialists in Child Development and Family Life, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service. Some of the nation's leading universities participated in the research and development of their States' newsletter series.
The newsletters can be found on the Just in Time Parenting Information website at http://www.parentinginfo.org.
