Parents playing with child

Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the aspects of raising a child aside from the biological relationship.

Unfortunately, children don’t come with an owner’s manual.  You may have questions about health, discipline, educational development, etc.  This section has some basic information about Child Safety, Parents Rights, Parenting Tips and Supportive Services available from the Division of Children and Family Services.
