Parenting Guides

You & Your Child and You and Your Foster Child are series of easy-to-use guides written especially for  parents to provide information and advice on topics that they may  encounter while caring for their children. Each guide is written by the University of Pittsburgh Office of Child Development based on current parenting literature, and is reviewed by a panel of child development experts and practitioners. 

These guides are offered free of charge to foster parents, family organizations, agencies, professionals, and others who work with foster children and their families. You and Your Child is also available in Spanish. Click the links below to view the guides.
