Bookmark this one, moms and dads. Hats off to Kansas State's Dr. Charles Smith for this freebie site that provides parents with an enlightening and amusing respite from the challenging job of parenting. Through his online course on Responsive Discipline, information on a growing ParentShare network, and superb links to other parenting sites, Smith promotes his parenting philosophy --a dynamic link between children's humanity and parents' intuition and the need to accept the uncertainty and magic in all human interactions. For a pause that refreshes, dip into the Reflecting Pool to enjoy a quiet moment of thought about your wishes and dreams as a parent or take a 'time out' to read the Good Humor pages. Smith's site is an expertly crafted, sensual delight, made all the more attractive by his chatty communiques about what's new, what's worked and what hasn't, and what he's planning in updates.

Celebrate!!!! EZ Connect has awarded your site Best of the Net. You have one of the best and most useful sites on the Internet and we'd like to award you for that.... The WonderWise Parent provides parents with an enlightening and amusing respite from the challenging job of parenting. (EZ Connect review)

The WonderWise Parent was created by Charles A. Smith, Ph.D., and offers a free, self-paced parenting course called Responsive Discipline. One of the most well-planned parenting resources on the Web, it not only leads you through a series of lessons about discipline, but provides scripts for responding to specific types of childhood misbehavior. (January 1997 issue of HomePC magazine)

Sweet, gentle, and innovative, WonderWise Parent offers moms and dads the tools they need to help themselves and their children become everything they want to be. Nicely organized with pretty icons and minimalist text intros to topics, the site includes a Reflecting Pool, which is a space for contemplating the moments of both frustration and joy that come to most parents, and for developing your own reflective powers. (from YPN.con)

Congratulations! The CyberMom Dot Com has deemed your site worthy of our 2 Hot 2 Handle Site of the Day medal. You will be linked from our 2 Hot 2 Handle page on February 13, 1997. Earning this designation is quite a distinction. We look for web sites that are likely to be appreciated by our CyberMoms: sites that generally seek to delight, inform or amuse by exhibiting excellence in graphics, content, or both. Of course it helps if there's something of special interest to a mom with a modem too! (CyberMom Review)

This award is given out to sites that are truly magical, that have something special about them. These sites may or may not be fairy related, but have the spirit of the fae. Sites are rated on their content, web design, what they are sharing with people around the world, ways that they are helping to make the world a better place, basically all around wonderful!
