Child rearing doesn’t come with a guidebook, but there are many resources and tips to help you navigate through some aspects of it.. July, also known as Purposeful Parenting Month, is an initiative from the US Department of Health and Human Services that focuses on fostering healthy relationships between a parent and child.

We’ve recently observed and brought awareness to men’s and women’s health, but this month we’re also focusing on raising awareness of children’s health issues. Specifically, on the positive effects of family time on a child’s mental health and adjustment to life.
Men’s Health Week, celebrated during the week ending on Father’s Day, started in the US in 1994 and expanded globally at the World Congress on Men’s Health in 2002 in Vienna, Austria.
