We all want our children to be happy, healthy and to thrive. It seems like such a hard goal, but somehow, most kids (and parents) get there.

TVOParents looks at what makes a happy and healthy child, and how to help those who are striving and struggling. From our obsession with obesity, to the value of sports, from getting your child's hearing and vision tested, to what's actually normal when it comes to growing - we have a whole kit of information that might help.
