Just in time for Mother's Day, the National Institutes of Health
has released ¿Qué Significa ser Padres? (What Does It Mean
To Be Parents?), a free Spanish-language publication geared
toward Hispanics who are seeking advice on parenting.
"We are very pleased to announce the release of this booklet,
especially during the time of the year when parents are being celebrated," said
Duane Alexander, M.D., Director of the NIH's National Institute
of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). "¿Qué Significa
ser Padres? is an educational tool that offers valuable parenting
information for first-time parents and grandparents alike."
¿Qué Significa ser Padres? — a Spanish-language
version of the NICHD's Adventures in Parenting booklet-offers
parenting strategies based on scientific research that can be used
for children of any age. The booklet gives practical suggestions
for successful parenting that parents can adapt for their own lives
and situations. It also includes real-life examples of how some
parents have incorporated these strategies into their own day-to-day
