ParentInfo

Alongside the Parent Zone  ParentInfo has been launched bringing together expert, up-to-date content aimed at parents and carers for schools to host on their own websites.

Schools can sign up for the service at ParentInfo.org and start hosting information for parents and carers on their website.

ParentInfo is a regularly updated and free feed of information, advice and sources of support that schools can deliver to parents and carers - a pipeline of information they can integrate seamlessly into their own websites and use in other formats.

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.
