Some of my Favorite Online Parent Resources
These are not endorsed by Rochester Public Schools; just some of my favorites for finding some cool stuff to do locally and some helpful information for parents!

Love and Logic Home Page

Children learn the best lessons when they're given a task and allowed to make their own choices (and fail) when the cost of failure is still small. Children's failures must be coupled with love and empathy from their parents and teachers.

This practical and straightforward philosophy is backed with a combined 75 years of experience. Parents can apply it immediately to a wide range of situations instead of struggling with difficult counseling procedures.

Is your family looking for something fun to do this week? The website offers detailed information on kid and parent classes, summer camps, fall and winter fun, community and special needs resources, and birthday party locations as well as a calendar of local family-friendly events (more than 100 every month) and a free weekly online/email newsletter (subscribe today and get the newsletter emailed to your inbox this Friday!).
