For Parents
Welcome to iEmily, the place for girls' health. iEmily offers comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date information on all aspects of girls' health. As parents, you have had to become healthcare "consumers" as you navigate the new healthcare system of HMOs and insurance companies. The Web has been a positive force in providing people with a wealth of information about medical conditions and procedures.

iEmily aims to teach our daughters how to be knowledgeable and responsible in matters of health. Our site includes sections devoted to general and reproductive health and skin care (Sex, Your Body, and Health), mental health (Your Mind and Feelings), nutrition (Healthy Eating), and fitness (Keep Fit). Natural health is an area of growing interest, and teenage girls want to learn more, too. Our Natural Health section provides a broad overview of natural health.

In our message boards, girls can send their questions to our team of physicians and receive personalized answers. Of course, the girls cannot get medical advice--only someone who examines you can give medical advice. They can, however, get explanations and information tailored to their specific concerns. iEmily monitors its chat rooms, message boards, and other forums regularly to help stop inappropriate materials from being posted.

Like most parents, you are concerned about your child’s privacy and protection online. It is iEmily’s intention to adhere to the FTC's Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act. Our policies describing our practices of collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under 13 are contained in our COPPA Notice.

We know that some parents may be concerned that iEmily deals with sensitive material, particularly in the areas of mental health and reproductive health. We hope that we treat these areas in a way that parents find informative, respectful, and helpful. iEmily is a resource for parents seeking guidance in handling these topics. Despite our best intentions, parents can’t always find the time, the words or the courage to tell our daughters how to protect themselves in a world that can be filled with risks.

We want to hear from you. You are on the front lines of educating our daughters. If you have any suggestions or comments about how iEmily can help you in your job as teacher and guide to your daughter, please email us at iemilyinfo@yahoo.com.
