Tools and Services to Help Empower Parents

National PTA wants to empower every parent to be able to best support their child’s needs and give them what they need to learn and thrive as they grow.

We teamed up with several businesses that offer tools and services that families can use to help their child reach their full potential.

Get support at home with these resources.

Tobacco-Free Kids

E-cigarettes and other flavored tobacco products are hooking a new generation on nicotine – putting millions of kids at risk and threatening progress in reducing youth tobacco use. It’s a nationwide crisis of youth addiction, fueled by thousands of kid-friendly flavors from cool mint and menthol to cotton candy, in products like e-cigarettes, menthol cigarettes, cigarillos and hookah. The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids provides resources for parents on the types of products hooking kids, how to talk to your kids about e-cigarettes and other tobacco products, and how parents can get involved and take action to help protect kids from flavored tobacco.
