Parenting Legal Tips

Parenting occasionally intersects with the law, requiring at least a basic understanding of legal concepts. For example, state laws are just beginning to address cyberbullying and other potential dangers children face on the Internet, while teaching children how to deal with strangers in the real world always has been important to their safety and well-being. The Parenting Legal Tips sub-section of FindLaw's Family Law Center includes articles and resources with useful tips on everything from child tax credits and advice for unmarried parents to adoption and divorce. Other topics include the legality of leaving one's child home alone; how to find decent and affordable childcare; and the federal 529 college savings plan.
