All parents have questions, ParentCentral.Net has answers
Orefield, PA – No one ever said parenting is an easy job. But as the world becomes increasingly fast-paced, children and parents are faced with more stress than ever. In the struggle to keep up, understanding your children and effectively interacting with them can start to feel like a losing battle.
When children feel like they’re in over their heads, they’re more apt to act out in ways that can be dangerous to themselves or others. Parents are often left foundering, wondering where to turn for help before a full-blown crisis erupts.
Look no further; we have the best-kept secret to help parents who need answers. ParentCentral.Net is a free, anonymous website where parents can log on and get professional guidance on issues ranging from alcohol awareness to bullying to making time for family meals and conversation. Within 24 hours of posting a question, members receive answers from trained counselors and parenting professionals. No topic is off limits, and posted questions will help define future content on the site, as we add material based on subjects our members ask about most.
“ParentCentral.Net speaks to parents about the issues that matter most to them,” says Julius Licata, Director of TeenCentral.Net and ParentCentral.Net. “There are some wonderful articles, but most importantly, parents can ask the questions that matter to them today and know that they will receive an answer within a short period of time, most often within 24 hours.”
ParentCentral.Net and its sister site, TeenCentral.Net, are supported by KidsPeace, a private charity dedicated to serving the behavioral and mental health needs of children, families and communities. KidsPeace is proud to celebrate 130 years of living out our mission to give hope, help and healing to everyone we serve.
