Strengthening families and giving young people the support they need to move away from gang activity can make a difference in our communities. Special thanks to The Commercial Appeal columnist Tonyaa Weathersbee for highlighting this issue and interviewing Youth Villages foster parent Yolanda Tate and clinical consultant Katie Puckett in her story today.
In an effort to promote positive parenting and prevent adverse childhood experiences consider making use of Advancing Parenting’s fifty-four parenting norms bumper stickers. Parenting messages on vehicles will be read thousands of times by thousands of people of all ages for years to come...a unique and powerful way to get quality parenting information out to the community. Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables in doctors’ offices, agencies, schools, and businesses so patients, parents, customers, and clients can choose one or more for their cars.
They can also be made available to attendees at events and meetings. The best strategy is to have them laid out on three tables... and it does take three tables! Tell the attendees that they may choose one or two for their car(s). Handing them out doesn't work as well. Some folks don't put stickers on their cars and everyone who wants one will appreciate the opportunity to make their own choice.
