Parenting Events in February
Many of us need all the resources we can find to navigate the parental maze that we are in regardless of our children’s age. One of my friends is tearing her hair out trying to potty-train her almost 3-year old daughter. Another friend starts psychotherapy this week in order to deal with problems with her teenage son. And last week, I braved the winter weather to attend an information evening on the Swiss school system for English-speaking families.
Which is why I have compiled a couple of resources for parents scheduled in February. These resources could be podcasts, audiocasts, health chats, classes, or simply useful links.
- February 8: Keeping Your New Year’s Weight Loss Resolution
The news series Healthcare 411 of the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) covers a wide range of health topics in the form of audio and videocasts. You can even have the audio downloaded to your mp3 player! Here’s some family-focused casts from AHRQ:
- Electively Inducing Labor: A guide on the safety and risks.
- Talk with Your Family, Talk with Your Doctor
- Using Core Needle Biopsy to Diagnose Breast Cancer
Some Fun Things For kids
Do you know that the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) site has a special part dedicated to kids (HHS for Kids)? It includes links to fun and informative resources such as:
…and many others.
Would you like me to continue bringing you resources links each month? Do you have any useful/interesting links to share with other BOL readers?
