"Many parents are constantly juggling work and caring for their families so they need 24-hour, seven days a week access to parenting information that is reliable and credible," says Dawn Walker, Executive Director, Canadian Institute of Child Health. "e-Parenting Network will provide parents with the information they need, when they need it. In addition, each module is presented by child health experts and is supported by research so they know it is from a trusted source."
One-stop resource for all your child health concerns
e-Parenting Network, hosted by Jayne Glenn, a New Brunswick mother of two and host of "Put A Lid On It" on the LIFE Network, is a series of eight online interactive webcasts presented by child health specialists in the areas of Nutrition, Safety and Injury Prevention, Climate Change, and Family Relationships/Positive Parenting. The content of each module is developed by a Project Advisory Committee that monitors the direction of the project; a Project Education Specialist, who compiles and analyses current data and produces a research paper on the specific topic; and finally a Sub-Advisory Committee, consisting of child health professionals, to review the content for accuracy.
Reliable information at your fingertips

Each topic on parenting issues features web pages, which include a viewable video, downloadable and printable documents, and research material, as well as links to other child health resources. The content and question and answer component of each module is delivered by an expert in the specific field and runs for approximately 40 minutes.
