I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to businesses, organizations, clinics, schools, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting and prevent child abuse five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

I had a blast last night speaking at Stand Up LD
on Executive Functioning Skills (housed in our prefrontal cortex). In this picture, I’m explaining the neuroscience of emotional regulation and self control using my watch dog (reptile brain) and thinking owl (neocortex) puppets. Toddlers and teenagers especially struggle in this area. Parents should stay off the escalation roller coaster and help co-regulate the child.

A great presentation of Executive Functioning
