eXtension Just In Time Parenting

eXtension Just in Time Parenting, is an outreach innovation that brings quality, research-based information to families at the time it can be most useful and make the biggest difference in their lives. Over the past 25 years, Cooperative Extension faculty in land-grant universities have developed and evaluated an unusually parent-friendly series. Capitalizing on the “teachable moment,” monthly “just in time” newsletters are delivered -- keyed to the age of each parent’s child. A team of Extension professionals from over 30 land-grant universities are transforming these research-based age-paced newsletters into a national interactive Internet resource on parenting.


The eXtension Just in Time Parenting website includes these great resources:

  • Age-paced newsletters that can be downloaded and printed
  • Facts sheets
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Access to experts across the country
  • Upcoming local Extension programs

Although the materials currently focus on infants, the information will extend from pregnancy through parenting in the teen years.
