Resources for soon to be parents
By Virginia R. Degner

  I receive many e-mails with questions from parents. Today a father to be shares his fear and anxiety. Go to the newborn section at the top of the website under the child development link and click on  newborns for an article dealing with parenting fears. "I'm excited to be a Dad, but I'm frightened too."

 These hot August days are the perfect time to enjoy family time before the daily school year routine begins again next month. In addition to a trip to the amusement parks in your area don't forget your regional parks for hiking, swimming, playing volleyball and picnic lunches.

For parents:  click on the child development link and go to "Birth". The article deals with giving your child guidance without becoming a hovering helicopter parent. Why am I talking about this with your newborn just arrived? Well this is the time to be aware and not fall into the helicopter parent trap as your child grows toward independence.
