General Parenting Resources

This is a huge website with lots of information on parenting, no matter what the topic you're interested in? Don't believe me? There's even a special section on family pets! (It's pretty comprehensive too. I learned a LOT about my cats' behaviors.) For a laugh, don't miss 25 signs you live in the 21st century. This site focuses on children from toddlers to high school. For babies, see the companion site, (below).

Child & Family Web Guide
This site from Tufts University "is a directory that evaluates, describes and provides links to hundreds of sites containing child development research and practical advice."
Started by a couple after the birth of their first child this is a place for parents to get advice from other parents, as well as professional experts. This site is organized very much like ParentSoup (above) but with a focus on babies and pregnancy.
Lots of information here, including the ability to search over 3,000 articles from Parenting, BabyTalk, and Family Life magazines. Specials sections on babies and toddlers and a great summer camp planner. Also includes a section on the best new toys.
Really nice set of annotated links, organized by topic. What's special here is the star rating. A better site gets a higher rating.
Created by a group of psychologists and educators this fun site deals with all subjects pertaining to marriage and parenting, including a section on teens.
