The Parent Power Blog provides support and resources to parents with suggestions, the telling of (often humorous) experiences and a sharing of resources. We seek to ask thought-provoking questions that challenge us to think about our parenting methods, and about ways that we might improve those methods to be parents that nurture our children, support them, love them, challenge them, and encourage them to be successful in all areas of their lives. Together, we can build a strong community for our children—The Learning Community, energized by Parent Power.
