The Parent Up Blog

We share practical, up-to-date information to help parents tackle difficult issues with their children such as underage drinking, drug use and mental health. Together, we can create positive outcomes for our children!

The Secret Sauce of De-stressing

Children get stressed when they experience simple frustrations, such as getting a bad grade, and when big things happen, like when someone they love dies. As parents, we know we can’t prevent our children from experiencing stress, but we can be a buffer from stress rather than a creator or cause of stress.

Welcome to the Parent Up Blog

At Parent Up, our mission is to prevent underage drinking in the Northland through equipping parents with facts, resources and tools. The aim of our new blog is to provide practical, up-to-date information about parenting from local experts and parents like you.
