Encouraging Your Children to Read
20 Ways for Parents to Encourage Reading
Resources from Reading is Fundamental (RIF) - Literacy Central
This website is created by teachers and general public. It's a good source if your looking for books by subject or level.
NetSmartz - this site created by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has links for parents, educators, law enforcement to find information for internet safety. Each page provides presentations and links to more information. This site also has a link for parents with teens and a special section just for kids.
Cybersmart - this website created by the Australian government is great for resources and advice about being online safely for all ages.
FBI's Parent Guide to Internet Safety - this is a direct link to the FBI's informational pamphlet to online exploitation and the risks to your children.
Helping with Homework
This site is packed with 'back-to-school' information - and it goes beyond homework help (although there is a great homework section here...)
The main back-to-school page includes links on getting ready for school, back-to-school safety, 'what parents need to know this school year', and even breakfast and lunch ideas and recipes.
Health and Parenting Center
This site from WebMD covers popular hot topics in parenting and health, popular searches as well as access to their online parenting community.
Planned Parenthood - Tools for Parents
Great source for tips on talking to children about growing up
