Resource for Parents
Education.com provides parents of school-aged children with free access to information and resources to give them the answers they need - plus activities and articles that make learning together more fun for everyone. There's no doubt about it - raising kids in the "wired world" where bullying, learning disability diagnosis, childhood obesity and divorce rates are at all time highs isn't easy.
Most parents intuitively know what multiple studies have proven: family involvement improves kids' success at school. Parents want to do the best they can for their kids but often don't have the right information to help them navigate today's complicated world. With the vast Internet at their fingertips, not having enough information is rarely a problem for parents. The bigger issue is knowing how to find the best information fast. Education.com is a one-stop source of information for all parents' educational, developmental, and parenting questions.
