The Boston Globe Parents Page Launches
Posted on February 25, 1999The Boston Globe has announced a new location on its website specifically directed to parents, families, and those who care for children. The Boston Globe Parents Page was developed by the paper's public relations department. The site has started with a compilation of previously-published content from award-winning Globe public service efforts that focus on children and reading, child safety and youth sports safety, and college planning for families.
The site also begins with an annotated section of outside links to nearly 20 other organizations that also offer important information for parents and children. Current topics include fire safety, education, coaching, playground safety, physical fitness, and general child welfare.
"We designed The Boston Globe Parents Page as a good resource about important subjects for families," said Globe spokesman Richard P. Gulla. "Some material - like that on reading and safety - is timeless and well worth recycling, and putting it on the web makes it readily accessible to more people.
"We'll add material as we go along and try to keep the information fresh, interesting, and most of all, useful. We want this site to be a place that people will visit and revisit."
