Coronavirus/COVID-19 resources for children and families

If you have a parenting resource that you would like us to consider as we expand this site, please complete our resource form. All submitted resources will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Inclusive: resources that do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, etc.,
  • Research-based: resources that feature the results and findings from peer-reviewed research that is relevant to parenting education and/or parenting. Personal blogs that feature opinions on parenting will not be eligible for inclusion on our website.
  • Not for Profit: resources that are ‘not for profit.’ If your website and/or resource is primarily focused on advertising classes, or promotional materials that would profit a business or individual, the OPEC website will not be able to provide advertising for your website. * Please note that if the main focus of the resource is to provide free high quality information about parenting or parenting education, then the resource may be eligible for inclusion despite  any ‘pay for’ options included as part of the resource.
