Information and Tips - in brief

Welcome! The pages that follow are meant to provide parents of young chidlren with brief - very brief - information about the young children with which God has blessed you.
 
It is our belief that parents need to know and understand the principles that underlie the care and training of their young children. This requires a knowledge of physical, mental and moral development.
 
The lessons learned, the habits formed, during the years of infancy and early childhood have more to do with the formation of the character and the direction of the life than have all the instruction and training of after years.*
 
The pages that follow are not intended to be an exhaustive resource for parents. Instead, there are links to many other extensive, topic specific websites for the various subjects introduced. Young Child Ministries reviews each of these websites for content relevance, but we don't necessarily endorse all the products and advertisements on these external sites. Most of the external links lead to government websites or websites of non-profit organizations.External websites are provided as a convenience to you for more intensive research purposes only.
