    Hi all,
    Does anyone have an article to share with parents about the importance of routines, rules, boundaries for home?  A Spanish version would be great too!
    Appreciatively,
    Emily

    Hi, Emily! If I'm understanding your request correctly and you're searching for an English and Spanish resource to share with parents regarding parenting choices/styles, I would recommend the Vanderbilt University online Play Nicely site (http://www.play-nicely.org/ - choose either English or Spanish version). While not a handout, it takes a short amount of time and sees positive changes in parental attitudes about what might be considered rules and boundaries.

    Also, childwelfare.gov (https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/cw_508_prev_guide_72.pdf) is a great resource, as is the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/childdevelopment/freematerials.html).

    Good luck!
