How to talk to Your Kids about War

Talking with children about scary events is difficult. The University of Minnesota published an article to help families talk to their children about the war in Ukraine. The tips in the article can also serve as a tool to talk with children about other scary events by simply replacing the details about the war with details about whatever tough topic is occurring.

Parenting…Behind the Behavior

To support your role in your child’s lives, Parenting Behind the Behavior has been designed for parents and caregivers to gather short pieces of parenting information via FaceBook. Parenting. . . Behind the Behavior (PBTB) started as a Facebook live series produced by a team of Division of Extension Human Development & Relationships Institute colleagues on the Digital Parenting workgroup. PBTB shares short, practical, research-based tips on topics related to family engagement and child development.

Welcome to eParenting

eParenting® is an innovative program initiative from Extension Family Engagement Programs.

The goal of eParenting® is to empower parents in their use of digital media as a positive tool supporting their parenting role.

eParenting® currently has two modules:

  • Co-Parenting is a 2-hour, face-to-face curriculum developed for divorced or separated parents of infants to teenagers.  The curriculum focuses on how digital media can be used to enhance parenting skills and build a secure connection between children and all their parents and caregivers.  The curriculum also helps parents understand normal child growth and development in the context of divorce and separation.
  • High-Tech Kids is a 2-hour, face-to-face curriculum developed for parents of youth 9-14 and focuses on the positive aspects of digital media, how digital media can support the developmental tasks of adolescents and how digital media can enhance parenting skills.  This module has also been adapted to an online, FYI blog format

Currently, most programs for parents about digital media focus on the potential negative effects of its use (e.g., cyber-bullying and online predators) and how parents can protect their children from such dangers. While these programs are valuable, they ignore the many positive aspects of digital media, including the ways that it can contribute to a child’s and family’s development, enhance the parent-child relationship and provide tools that can strengthen and extend child-rearing skills.
