Minnesota parents know

MPKThis first-of-its-kind website remains a valuable resource.

Minnesota Parents Know is a resource filled with convenient and trusted child development, health and parenting information. The site was developed for parents by the Minnesota Department of Education, and it provides research-based information on child health, development, nutrition and safety in raising strong and healthy children.

The information on the site is organised into sections on the newborn, ages 1-2, ages 3-5, grade 12 and student-parents, and within each category there is a Parenting A-Z and a section on child development. There are a good range of videos accompanying the written information, with some available in Spanish, Hmong, Somali, Vietnamese, Lao & Khmer, courtesy of ECHO Minnesota.

The history of MN Parents Know dates back to 2006, but sadly the site does not appear to have been updated since 2013, so there are some broken weblinks. Nevertheless, it remains an attractive site and is easy to navigate.

I think the site is worth bookmarking because it is free, does not require any log-in, and you may find that one day it contains just the resource that you’re looking for!
