The Parents' Place

You’re here because you want to enrich your child’s life. At Free Spirit, that’s our #1 priority. Since 1983, we’ve been committed to kids, teens, and the adults who care about them. We work hard to make your job a little easier by providing books and other resources that cover everything from the pride of parenting to its challenges, frustrations, and pitfalls. Our high-quality tools can help you guide and support your children—and sustain your own sanity.

We hope you’ll stay and visit a while. Download excerpts from our award-winning books and useful bonus materials. Explore other sites we know and recommend. Come back often; we’re always growing and changing. And let us know how we’re doing.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions, your thoughts—and your ideas for other books and tools you think would benefit parents. What would you like to find in our catalog? What do you need? How can we help you? Email us and let us know.
