Parent Volunteer Information

What is the Good Parentingcm mark? There are over 29 thousand parenting books, 16 million parenting websites, 4 million parenting ‘how-to’ videos and countless parenting magazines on the market today.

In consideration of a parent’s limited amount of time and money, it is difficult to sort through the various media for advice. What is helpful, and what is hype?

Parental Wisdom® has been awarded the Good Parentingcm certification mark by the U.S. Patent office to resolve this issue by reviewing and recommending media that will be helpful to parents. Our goal is to help families identify quality parenting educational material in support of their efforts in raising children.

True to the Parental Wisdom® methodology, the objective is to evaluate the directness and helpfulness of the content, not to judge the message.

Parental Wisdom® will use the collective, practical expertise of its members to review media. The material under review will be classified by age and/or topic. For example:

  • Communication
    • Family
    • School
    • Toddler
    • Teen
  • Nutrition
    • Family
    • Toddler
    • Teen
  • Family Issues
    • Divorce
    • Loss, etc.
  • Others

As part of our review process, we call on a wealth of talented volunteer parents from across the country to review books, websites, how-to-videos, CDs and DVDs to ensure the materials are helpful to parents.
