Prescriptions for Parents

The National Physicians Center and the American College of Pediatricians recognize the problem of family disruption. Family is the foundation of society, where children learn values, develop strong relationships, and practice healthy lifestyles. When the family is disrupted, societal chaos and individual failure are more common. Parents have a desire to provide for their children's needs, practice appropriate discipline and demonstrate strong character as well as have a healthy marriage, but these skills do not come naturally. The National Physicians Center the the American College of Pediatricians plan to disseminate information to parents using their network of professional experts and the web, social media, and digital information to assist in providing vital guidance in raising successful children in secure and loving families.
