Parent INFO - latest articles

Visit the ParentINFO website Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience.
This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’

In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

  7. All too often at the moment, we are hearing stories of young people leaving Britain to fight in Syria. They have come to the conclusion that they would be better off in a war zone than in the UK. What goes wrong? What are they looking for? And what do parents need to understand to stop this?
