As every parent knows, being a parent is like being in school, you always need to learn something new and you always need to adapt to the situation at hand. So where does a parent go these days to learn more about the issue at hand, is TV reliable, maybe radio or newspapers? The most common form of information gathering these days is internet, of course there are parent study groups and counseling, but for a quick insight or even detailed explanation of a problem and how to deal with it, parents can use internet. The only issue here is where to find quality information, there are thousands of sites offering something, but over 90% of them are fluff and only target traffic and money, but there are a few that offer real useful information. If you can’t find them your best bet is to turn to encyclopedia types of pages on the net, so here are a few encyclopedia resources for parents.
Now these types of pages are not the advice giving types, they will most likely not tell you to do this and that or take this course of action over the other one; they will give you facts related to some problem or issue you might have. That is exactly what you need in order to understand a certain issue. The first parenting encyclopedia recommended is Family Go. This website offers information on every single aspect that concerns parenting. You can find info about teen behavior, health and fitness, school and learning, parenting in general and certain strategies and of course dating and sex.
The second parenting encyclopedia provides an extensive list of teen issues, illnesses and disorders with a short description that is to the point. The parenting encyclopedia we are talking about is Parent’s Common Sense Encyclopedia. This is the first place you should look to find the basic and most needed information about any problem; their index is list in an alphabetical order so you can easily find what you need.
The last parenting encyclopedia recommended is Child Encyclopedia. This encyclopedia provides all the necessary info about raising a child. You can find anything from changing a dipper and which ones to use to crying and eating behavior. Although this encyclopedia focuses on raising little kids, from newly born to 6 years of age, it also provides plenty of information about teenage issues and the most common problems. Great benefit of this site is that plenty of info is available in PDF format, so you can download it, print it and read when you have the time.
There is no point in talking about the importance of being informed as a parent, it all revolves around it. Staying in touch with your kids in the 21st century can be overwhelming, so any type of help is welcome. These three parenting encyclopedia websites offer real useful information and I hope they will help you.
