Parenting Advice and Parenting Tips

A good place to start with parenting advice is your pediatrician. Your child's doctor is a great resource for issues such as:

If you don't know when to start feeding your baby solid food or how to get them to sleep through the night, your child's pediatrician may be able to offer you some resources that will teach you how to get through those early days of baby parenting. When it comes to parenting adolescents, that doctor continues to be a solid reference point.

Several books on different parenting methods, such as Dr. Sears and his attachment parenting movement, may help you decide about which parenting technique is right for you. There are also many websites that can teach you about these differing philosophies. Remember that no parenting method is perfect, and different methods may not work with different children.

Parenting kids can be tough, and you'll need all the parenting help you can get, especially if you've had no experience with kids in the past. Other parents are perhaps the best resources for you, if you need help right now and can't wait for an appointment or take the time to read a book. No one knows how to parent like someone who's been there!

Your parenting journey can be tough, but with the right advice, you will figure out some of the most challenging milestones. Soon enough, a new parent may ask you for advice!
