Welcome to Dove Parenting Blog, our latest addition to dove.org. Most visitors to The Dove Foundation website are parents who are surrounded by countless pressures trying to raise G-rated kids in an R-rated world. The primary role of Dove is to equip parents so they can make informed choices when selecting entertainment that reflects their values. The Dove Parenting Blog is the next logical step in that equipping process. Our Dove Parenting bloggers offer special insights into their unique worlds. For example, raising preschoolers and adolescents is quite different from ‘negotiating’ with teenagers. Homeschool parents face yet a different set of challenges. Media-savvy parents, especially those trying to balance celebrity status with the pressures of raising good kids, have their own issues. We hope you find Dove Parenting both helpful and enjoyable. New postings will appear weekly on Dove.org and on Twitter and Facebook.
