About Parent Toolkit

Parent Toolkit is a one-stop resource developed with parents in mind. It’s produced by NBC News Education Nation and supported by Pearson and includes information about almost every aspect of your child’s development, because they're all connected. Healthy, successful children can excel in many areas – in the classroom, on the court, and in their relationships with peers and adults. Our advice also covers important topics for navigating life after high school.

Grade Levels

Pre-K and Kindergarten are a time of great development for your child. From spending time in their first classroom to physical and social development, there's a lot to navigate.

Featured

In elementary school, your child experiences many changes, including shifting friendships, a stronger sense of their own beliefs, and more rigorous academics.

Featured

Middle schoolers start experiencing more strenuous coursework while developing a their sense of self and facing stronger influence of their peers.

Featured

High schoolers are on their way to becoming independent adults and must adopt the responsibilities that go along with these changes. Your support is still as important as ever.

Featured

How much, or how little, to be involved is just one of the many relationship changes you’ll have as your child leaves high school. Support their independence no matter where they’re going after high school.

Featured


Topics

Understanding the concepts your children are learning in school can help you support them at home. Find ways to support them from Pre-K all the way through high school.

Featured

Research shows that those with higher social-emotional skills have better attention skills and fewer learning problems, and are generally more successful in academic and workplace settings. Like any math or English skills, these skills can be taught and grow over time.

Featured

Proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and physical activity can all impact academic performance and overall mental and physical wellness. Support healthy behaviors at any age.

Featured

Understanding how to manage finances is an important part of your child’s growth and ultimate independence. Like any skill, financial literacy needs to be taught.  

Featured

There’s perhaps no bigger change than graduating high school. No matter the path, there are still ways to support your child’s journey to adulthood.
