PBS Parents: Trust PBS, the people who bring you all of that wonderful educational children’s programming, to have a thoughtful and easy to navigate site chock full of helpful parenting information. Fun to browse around when you are looking for inspiration, or information about a particular age or developmental stage.

Getting Boys to Read: The name says it all. This site has a hodgepodge of information about how to inspire and encourage boys to read.

Guys Read: This site was developed by Jon Scieszka, popular author of books boys like, including the “Guys Read” anthologies. This site’s mission is “to help guys become readers by helping them find texts they want to read”. A great source of books which can to get your reluctant reader reading.

Black and Married With Kids: Not a parenting site per se, but it does have a parenting section with thoughtful articles.

Common Sense Media: Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization that provides information and tools to helps parents understand and function in the world of new media. They also review movies and games, giving parents a useful guide to determine what is age appropriate.

    Hey ya’ll,
    Hope you are well. There’s a couple of good sites for movie reviews and other sorts of functional stuff. I’ll see if I can find a few.
