Great New Resources for Parents Launched by Alberta Health Services

By Ilene Fleming

Yesterday, I participated in the launch of “Healthy Parents Healthy Children” by Alberta Health Services. Every parent wants to do their best to raise a healthy child and the resources launched will provide support and guidance for families.

I was delighted to be asked to participate as a parent, because being Olivia’s mom brings me so much joy. Since Olivia was born, almost three years ago, I’ve experienced enormous growth as a parent. I’ve also been bombarded with plenty of advice and opinions (sometimes unsolicited and even contradictory!) about how to parent. I had no idea just how complex the parenting role would be! So, it’s wonderful to have this trusted source of information to support me, support Olivia.

The resources launched include a website and two comprehensive books: “Pregnancy and Birth” and “The Early Years.” I like that I can go online and search for information, whenever I need it. For instance, I can find out how to encourage healthy eating or good sleeping habits and what to do to support transitions that our whole family experiences as Olivia grows.  

The books are comprehensive and cover topics I hadn’t even considered, like:  when do I start flossing Olivia's teeth?  I love that there are pictures, quotes and suggested activities for us to support her next stage of development.  

It’s good to know that if I have a concern about Olivia’s development or if I need help, there is a list of additional resources! I can find out what to do and where to call. This information can be found in the books, under the section “Where to go for more information” and online as well.

And, I am so happy that there are reminders for parents to take care of ourselves. Sometimes this is the hardest thing to do, but healthy parents are a key ingredient for healthy children. And, in order to do our best, we all need support as parents.

I encourage all parents to check out these new resources and share them with others in your community. Helping parents feel connected and supported is a wonderful way to support children.
