Government Launches a New Online Tool for Parents

The government has launched a new online tool for schools across the country to give parents the best possible advice and tips on preparing their children for adult life. The new online service, called Parent Info, (http://parentinfo.org/), will give parents the information they need to help them navigate the issues children can now face on everything from spotting the warning signs of self-harm, to having a healthy body image and managing money in a digital world. As well as giving them the confidence and support to speak to their children on such sensitive issues, it will also provide them with pathways for where they can go for more hands on support on specific issues. Schools can easily integrate the free Parent Info newsfeed in to their websites and host this advice by registering online.
