Parenting :: New Spanish publication gives evidence-based parenting guidelines

Just in time for Mother’s Day, the National Institutes of Health has released ?Qu? Significa ser Padres? (What Does It Mean To Be Parents?), a free Spanish-language publication geared toward Hispanics who are seeking advice on parenting.

“We are very pleased to announce the release of this booklet, especially during the time of the year when parents are being celebrated,” said Duane Alexander, M.D., Director of the NIH’s National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). “?Qu? Significa ser Padres? is an educational tool that offers valuable parenting information for first-time parents and grandparents alike.”

?Qu? Significa ser Padres? ? a Spanish-language version of the NICHD’s Adventures in Parenting booklet-offers parenting strategies based on scientific research that can be used for children of any age. The booklet gives practical suggestions for successful parenting that parents can adapt for their own lives and situations. It also includes real-life examples of how some parents have incorporated these strategies into their own day-to-day parenting activities.
