What is ParentInfo?
ParentInfo is a regularly updated and free feed of information, advice and sources of support for parents and carers – a pipeline of information. The content comes from leading experts in their fields (Brook, Young Minds, Coram, iRights, Diana Awards, Quilliam, FPA, Beat etc).
At a time when schools are under pressure to protect students from online hazards, ParentInfo is a vital resource for parents and carers.
The service aims to deliver information on a whole range of parenting themes, the emphasis being on helping parents and carers develop their children’s resilience to the risks and pressures they face in today’s world. The articles and videos cover difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet, body image and peer pressure, as well as broad parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’.
In line with Thinkuknow some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
