      Hi Tad,

      Thanks for your comment. Although a couple of these go into the teen years, like the Child Development Institute, you're right. Most of them are geared at new parents.

      As the parent of a teen myself, believe me, I know how difficult it can be. So, I'm going to see if I can compile a list just for us :)

      Thanks!
      Sandy
