Funbrain.com is an excellent site for rapidly growing minds. Plenty of parents have problems getting their kids to enjoy their homework or learn about new things.

Most kids do hate these things, because they feel like chores. Funbrain.com is an excellent site because it encourages your child to have fun while he is learning, and he is rewarded by points, levels and competition.

There are also other pages on the site that are geared towards kids or teens, which are language and content appropriate for the ages of their users. Kidshealth.org can assuage any of your parenting concerns regarding your child's health, but they often remind you that a doctor knows best. Although the site may help to suggest possible diagnoses for your son or daughter's problems, remember that it does not provide an official diagnosis! Only a doctor can provide you with that.

You can spend your time on the site searching for the latest and most fashionable baby gear, or you can steer your attention towards the advice page, where you will find a plethora of helpful articles and snippets. One of the reasons why we think that BabiesRus.com is extra special is because its preliminary function is as a retail site. Unlike other sites that only concern themselves with parenting techniques, Babies R Us concerns itself with products. What brand of carseat should you buy? What should you put in your new nursery?

We suggest that you understand these trends (not follow them), so that you can open up an easier flow of communication with your teen. Nobody wants to be the parent that's "so, like, out of it".
