Southern Columbia Area
H1N1 (Swine Flu) Information
has created a Parent Portal (www.cdc.gov/parents
) to help parents find information to give children healthier, safer lives.
The CDC Parent Portal organizes and presents information for parents and
provides resources from across CDC, all in one location, making it easier
for parents to find what they are looking for. The Portal is a great source
for credible, accurate information in helping parents raising healthy
kids and providing a safe home and community. It also is a resource for
diseases and conditions that can occur, and for developmental milestones
and schedules. The Parent Portal also provides information on physical
activity, diet, physical and mental health, injuries and violence, peer
relationships, and a special section on risk behaviors geared for the
parents of teens.
