Short-Stories-Help-Children.com provides a welcome twist to parenting and enables kids to publish stories and solicit comments.

Originally launched in December of 2006, the site aims to cut through much of the tedium of learning from the parenting professionals. 

Short-Stories-Help-Children.com is a light-hearted, refreshing look into parenting for those moms and dads struggling with their first gradeschoolers. It deals with raising kids in today's complex world of marketing hype, peer pressure and behavioural issues.

The site provides commentary about educational methods, literacy in its various forms, learning disorders, distractions that hurt productivity, discipline and violence in schools to name a few. And it invites parents to share their experiences.

Basic concepts are clarified by the analogy of writing short stories to show parents how to focus a child's attention and efforts. 

Simple, otherwise unseen, benefits are highlighted, and sometimes a parent is given a slap on the wrist for falling into everyday traps.

The site includes:

  • The Parenting Answers Search Engine
  • Games, puzzles, audible stories, brain teasers, safe play areas and educational links for children
  • Various resources for childhood activities, writing tips, and, of course, a dash of short stories, and all are family friendly.
  • Readers can opt-in to a newsletter and supply anecdotes of their own parenting successes and mishaps
Much of the insight is provided by the author, who passes on many common sense views on parenting in this fast-paced society. The premise is that many parents may not be able to see the forest for the trees, and have been led to believe that today's 'acceptable parenting techniques' will stand the test of time.

Sometimes parents need a wake-up call.

One concerned parent had this to say about her experience:

"As a homeschooling mom, working as a summer camp riding program director and later operating a fledgling drop in youth center, I've spent tons of time following rabbit trails of links on the web looking for inspiration as well as effective 'management techniques'...Your site has to be the richest resource I've come across, ever. Keep up the good work."
