About Pediatrics for Parents

We like to think of ourselves as a pediatric journal for parents. Pediatrics for Parents is the best single source of children’s health information, and our goal is to help you become an active and informed partner in your child’s healthcare.

Unlike other parenting websites, we don’t provide parenting information in hopes that you’ll buy stuff from our store (we don’t have one), we don’t offer bulletin boards or chat rooms, and we’re not secretly funded by a pharmaceutical or other big company. We’re simply a small publishing company just writing and gathering the best information for rearing healthy children.

We have:
• A bi-monthly newsletter with in-depth articles that are written by pediatricians and other healthcare professionals for parents of children of all ages
• Full online access to every article that has appeared in our newsletters
• Practical parenting tips

While our website is kept fairly updated, the best way to receive all of the most recent information we’ve written and published is by subscribing to our newsletter (delivered to you by mail or email, your choice!).

Subscribe to our newsletter, read some of helpful and informative articles, and see if you’re not hooked!

If you like what you see, please return to our website often and recommend us to other parents and those who care for children.


Pediatrics for Parents began in 1981 as an effort to educate parents in a family practice residency about basic pediatric information, in depth articles on children’s health, and the latest news on pediatric advances. It grew from a 4-page quarterly publication to a bi-monthly 28 page newsletter.
