The Better Kids Institute is a global organization with the goal of helping parents bring up better children — via two areas of focus:

* Working with child development experts from throughout the world to provide valuable content for parents on how to bring up better kids

* Identifying the best businesses in local communities throughout the United States that cater to children in the four to nine years old age group

Our child development experts are made up of authors, speakers, and consultants who provide content on such topics as confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, health, fitness, nutrition, obesity, parenting, life lessons, motivation, misbehavior, discipline, fun activities, bullying, social skills, ADHD, and safety. This content can be accessed via the menu on the right, The Better Kids Blog, and our Better Kids Resources page.

Our local child-development resources are in these eight categories: after-school programs, anti-bullying programs, martial arts schools, dance/ballet studios, sports/fitness clubs, summer/holiday camps, physical activity venues, and birthday party venues.

Beyond this website’s blog content and listings, some of our experts and local businesses develop other resources for parents, such as newsletters, reports, books, educational videos, podcasts, webinars, and e-learning programs.

When we learn of these additional resources, we post a link to it below. We encourage you to take advantage of this valuable information.
