The Council on Children and Families recently released the NYS Parent Guide Website. This website is your guide for the first five years of your parenting journey. Whether you are the mother or father (through birth, adoption, or foster care), a grandparent, partner, family friend, aunt or uncle with parenting responsibilities, what you say and do in your role as a parent matters. 

A PDF version of the Parent Guide is also available for download.
