Thanks for visiting! We are no longer updating Parentifact, but you can still find a few of our favorite articles and our Credible Source Search Engine below.

Why not every article and the forums? We started Parentifact as a reliable alternative to the relatively poor media resources we found when we became parents. We simply ran out of time to continue updating and maintaining the site, and the last thing we want is for our own outdated content to be lingering around, giving people old and potentially inaccurate information.

Nevertheless, we’ve kept here some articles we consider evergreen, and our search engine, which only looks for information from particular websites we’ve found to be trustworthy.

If you want to reach out and see what we’re up to now, contact us at [email protected].
