Restore Childhood

Parent Organizations

Restore Childhood centers the needs of children through advocacy for health, education, athletics and art.

We know that children’s whole health is far more than just the absence of disease. Health is the state of physical, mental, intellectual, social and emotional well-being enabling children to reach their fullest developmental potential. During the Covid-19 pandemic it became apparent that policy makers have little motivation or political will to provide thoughtful and nuanced policies that place the well-being of children first.

All too often, public regulations impact children with little thought given to their impact on childhood and a normal, healthy, developmental process. Practices around childhood, educational curricula and extracurricular activities are not based on rigorous, evidence-based decision making, but rather the general cultural zeitgeist, or political whims of the loudest voices.

This is unacceptable. Childhood is sacred and worthy of protection. It cannot be redefined by special interests but must be defended and restored.

We are parents who are filling this gap. Because children do not have a union. Because developmental milestones must be honored and cannot be moved.

We advocate for them.
