Ever have one of those days? You know, when it seems as if you’ve failed as a parent. You’re not alone. Raising kids is one of the most difficult jobs on the planet, and whether you’re dealing with a tantrum-throwing toddler or an “I know everything” teen, you are occasionally going to need support. Everyone does.

Luckily, the child behavior experts at Boys Town have seen some of the most difficult parenting situations imaginable. They’ve worked with virtually every issue in the book, researched and refined their methods and parenting techniques over many decades and have made their wisdom available for parents just like you.

The Parenting Email Series consists of several free, short weekly emails with unique and useful insights into specific parenting subjects. Each email contains a weekly teaching activity and social skill that you and your kids can implement. Current topics include:

Toddlers

Sleep Issues

Potty Training

Kids and Technology

Today’s Teen

Teen Discipline

The response to these Series has been overwhelming:

 “I think the content was well written, by someone who has children with practical application. Well done. Thank you.”

“Simple and to the point. Basic ‘to dos’ that all parents can benefit from.”

“This information was very helpful, it was concise and to the point which was refreshing!”
