Parenting Together Newsletter

The Parenting Together Newsletter was first launched in 2015 as a monthly resource for parents. Content for the newsletter is written by the Parenting Education Team at OSU, with development made possible via generous funding from OPEC. The newsletter is distributed by OPEC Parenting Hubs across the state of Oregon and in Northern California (Siskiyou County). Please share this newsletter with parents and professionals. If shared by an organization, please acknowledge OSU and OPEC (see sample citation below).


Parenting Blog

The Parenting Blog is our platform for sharing the latest in innovative parenting research and resources. This blog is invite-only with contributors across parenting and child development fields. Contributors currently include parent and child researchers who are experts in their field, as well as OSU Faculty from the Parenting Education Team. While we deeply appreciate the opinions and contributions of our blog writers, they do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of Oregon State University or OPEC. If you are interested in writing for this blog (and an expert in parenting or child development), please contact us at [email protected].
