Every child's journey is different. We partner with and guide parents when challenges arise in their child's education, health, behavior or development, so children can reach their full potential.

"Knowledge is power and ParentsCAN helps families to be powerful."

News & Notes

Little kids are diabolically engineered to make their parents do what they want. That’s the overwhelming impression I got when I talked to a bunch of academics about the origins of whining. Children are good at co-opting whatever arsenal of behaviors they have” to get parental attention, even certain types of monkeys whine!

Yes, children with physical challenges can enjoy physical activity! Besides being fun to play, sports can give both kids and parents an emotional boost. "I think sports are especially important for Max: The more his muscles move, the better," explained Ellen Seidman in a post on Love That Max, her blog about raising son Max, who has cerebral palsy, and his sister and brother. She added: "Sports can give his ego a workout, too ... I want him to feel proud of his accomplishments on the field, around other kids and parents. I want him to have that sports high."

Studies have found that volunteering can positively impact both your body and your mind. We're here to tell you all about the different ways doing good in your community can do some good for yourself.
