INTERACTIVE WEB TV FOR PARENTS OFFERS ONE-STOP DESTINATION FOR CHILD
HEALTH INFORMATION
-- Canadian Institute of Child Health launches e-Parenting Network --


OTTAWA, ON - The Canadian Institute of Child Health today unveiled
e-Parenting Network, an interactive web TV parenting series accessed
through the Internet, at www.eparentingnetwork.ca, for Canadian
families. e-Parenting Network was developed to provide a credible,
timely, one-stop child health resource for parents, guardians,
grandparents and caregivers. The first live session, Climate Change,
will air in June.

"Many parents are constantly juggling work and caring for their
families so they need 24-hour, seven days a week access to parenting
information that is reliable and credible," says Dawn Walker, Executive
Director, Canadian Institute of Child Health.  "e-Parenting Network will
provide parents with the information they need, when they need it.  In
addition, each module is presented by child health experts and is
supported by research so they know it is from a trusted source."

One-stop resource for all your child health concerns
e-Parenting Network, hosted by Jayne Glenn, a New Brunswick mother of
two and host of "Put A Lid On It"  on the LIFE Network, is a series of
eight online interactive webcasts presented by child health specialists
in the areas of Nutrition, Safety and Injury Prevention, Climate Change,
and Family Relationships/Positive Parenting. The content of each module
is developed by a Project Advisory Committee that monitors the direction
of the project; a Project Education Specialist, who compiles and
analyses current data and produces a research paper on the specific
topic; and finally a Sub-Advisory Committee, consisting of child health
professionals, to review the content for accuracy.

Reliable information at your fingertips
To view a webcast, parents, guardians, grandparents, and caregivers
should go to www.eparentingnetwork.ca and click on the topic of
interest. Each topic on parenting issues features web pages, which
include a viewable video, downloadable and printable documents, and
research material, as well as links to other child health resources. The
content and question and answer component of each module is delivered by
an expert in the specific field and runs for approximately 40 minutes.
To ask the expert presenter a question, viewers simply click on the icon
and send an e-mail before or during the webcast. Videos will also be
archived so visitors to the site can view a previously aired session.
The e-Parenting Network website will also be continuously updated with
the latest research and information on child health issues.  e-Parenting
Network sessions can be viewed on any computer with Microsoft's Media
Player.

e-Parenting Network has been made possible by the support of project
partners, which include Canadian Library Association, Canadian Public
Health Association and Industry Canada's Community Access Program.
Various Canadian corporations dedicated to supporting child health
initiatives sponsor each module, including Cheerios® and AOL Canada.
Government funding is provided by the Government of Canada Climate
Change Action Fund and Human Resources Development Canada * Office of
Learning Technologies.

"For decades Cheerios has been a trusted partner in contributing to the
growth and development of children in Canada," said Christi Strauss,
President, General Mills Canada Co.  "We are proud to be one of the
first corporate partners to support this new parenting resource.  Family
nutrition is an area of focus for Cheerios and we're delighted to help
make this information available to parents online."
