Excellent Articles for Parents: Issues Faced by Today’s Children

The Center for the Improvement of Child Caring (CICC) is excited to herein share with you a series of authoritative articles for parents and for people who work with parents.

As you will be able to tell from the titles of the articles, they address health and education challenges that today’s youth are facing, such as signs about whether a child is being bullied, and with how to help drug and technology addicted youth.

Each article is from a very knowledgeable scientific source or writer.
