The National Parenting Center: www.tnpc.com/ -- The National Parenting Center, a national "parent information service" founded in 1989, is dedicated to providing information to parents to assist and support in positive parenting efforts. Guidance is offered via some of the most well-known child-rearing authorities in the form of daily features and articles of interest covering developmental stages beginning from Pregnancy and Newborn to Preteens and Adolescence. Topics include communication, socialization, body image, drug use, setting limits, privacy, and much more. This is a terrific resource!
