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.

Lock down drills are stressful on the body - for kids and teachers. When we can help fear move out of our bodies, it's less likely it will be stored traumatically. Here's some great info on helping students recover from a lock down drill.

Why Your Kid’s Bad Behavior May Be a Good Thing

Good article in the NYT today. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/11/well/family/rude-child-development-behavior.html

Why Your Kid’s Bad Behavior May Be a Good Thing The safer children feel, the more they can show their true selves — warts and all — experts say. And that’s good for their development.

Another book to recommend! I listened to the audiobook version which was awesome because it’s read by Amber Ruffin, one of the authors, and she is very funny. The book is both entertaining (she IS a professional comedian after all) and also very NOT funny, seeing as how it’s stories of one racist experience after another. For me, it was an eye-opening look at just how often awful racist stuff happens. And, oddly, despite the awful stuff, I still thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Anyway, check it out! #whatareyoureading #bookrecommendations #bookstagram #amberruffinandlaceylamar #parenthoodunderstood

Although it’s been years since I read this book, it has stayed with me. It’s beautiful and painfully heart-wrenching at the same time. I work towards a world where we love and accept and include, and mourn that we aren’t there yet.

So well said. I also often wonder about my whiteness and my limitations with clients who are POC. I try to address it directly but I feel clumsy at times. Definitely an area of needed further growth for me.

If you’ve been wanting to look at your relationship with alcohol, and how it may have changed at this age in life, and possibly during the pandemic, you’re invited to join us for Dry Together September.

We meet weekly for one hour via Zoom on Wednesday evenings, without labels and no stigma attached.

We’re not a sobriety or recovery group. When we are together, we are Dry Together (and midlife AF). Come see how other moms are dealing with drinking and learn new ways to cope and have fun.

The word for this week, parents, is stamina. As in, stamina: our kids ain't got it.

It's been a year and a half for many of them since they have been in a setting where they were required to focus and pay attention and be told what to do and be surrounded by constant sensory input. Even the ones who went back to school towards the end of last year were in reduced-density classrooms.

This year is different. It's going to be a while before their bodies and brains build back up to the level of stamina they had prior to March 2020. Give them a grace period to find their footing and re-learn how to manage in the new-old setting. Expect exhaustion, and you may also see more tears, irritability, or even school refusal. Take care of yourself so that you can be patient with them. Make evenings easier and prioritize energy management. We will all adjust to this, too.

This is helpful for our kids (and ourselves!)

Got a kiddo getting ready to return to virtual learning in the fall? Love LOVE these seating tips from @alinclusivetherapy!! Positioning is SO important to learning.

08/09/2020

For many reasons, actually...

As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, it’s important for us to remember that when we ask students to turn on their cameras, we are inviting the entire class into their home.

If students are uncomfortable, don’t force them. Many students don’t have the space they are proud of and can be embarrassed by their living environment.

Allow them to have a choice. They can talk in the chat, have audio only, or video and audio. I also encourage you to survey your kiddos to gauge their comfort levels. And RESPECT IT!! Please do not exert teacher privilege during this time.

We don’t have the right to force ourselves in their homes. Respect that they are there and they chose to show up. While we work on our mental health, be sure to remember theirs. #virtualteaching #therapeuticteacher #covidteaching

15 Kid-Friendly Movies That Can Help Build a Conversation About Race and Racism

I've been looking for something like this. My family watches a movie most Friday nights and I want to use that as a talking moment (but some of the better movies that address race aren't a good match for young kids.) Let's all pick a movie (more than one!) and use family movie night as one more way to be anti-racist.

womansday.com Even adults can learn from these films.

06/03/2020

The thing about a lot of well-meaning white folks' racism is that we don't know we have it. Sometimes I can spot my own racist reactions, and when I do, I try to figure out what I can do to counteract them. But what is also true is that a LOT of this stuff is unconscious. If we pretend it isn't there, if we refuse to acknowledge it, we give it MORE power. Time to stop defending.

I just took this "Implicit Bias" test and was so sad to see my results, but then I remembered that I already knew that there was plenty of racist crap in my head. This test just confirmed to me that the racism I have been living in and breathing in like smog has indeed affected me in ways that I am not even conscious of.

I challenge you to take this test (from Harvard University) yourself. It's only 10 minutes long. Use it--and your results--to further motivate yourself to DO something to address injustice that affects ALL of our children.

I have had a backyard Teletherapy Studio (really it’s a shed) for a couple of years. As events of late have me there full-time, I have added a few things to make it feel more like my regular office. I stopped for a moment today to appreciate it. I am thankful for this comfortable, private, and beautiful space. I am thankful I can keep working. I am thankful for the parents who share their journey with me.

I can’t tell what the future holds (and omg that is painful and scary) but when I can be present and appreciate something in the moment, it really helps.

I hope you all have something beautiful, calm, funny, or loving come your way this evening.

Austin families, I just want to make sure you see what AISD sent out earlier this week--it's REALLY important. I'll paste the quote in the comments, but basically they won't be issuing grades for the rest of the year, instead they'll give kids either a pass/incomplete, and getting an incomplete doesn't make kids have to repeat the year. AISD also says that their first priority is physical and mental health. (not academic achievement.) (a) This is as it should be, and (b) This is wonderful, and (c) PLEASE take this as permission to let go of the stress of expectations around figuring out all this school stuff right now. Do what you can manage for now.

Crying in Your Car Counts as Self-Care

Crying in the car. Crying in the shower. Cookies. Ice cream. Baking! Long walks/ short runs. Just finding a minute to be alone. Oh, and being on a media diet. https://messaging-custom-newsletters.nytimes.com/template/oakv2?campaign_id=118&emc=edit_ptg_20200408&instance_id=17449&nl=nyt-parenting&productCode=PTG®i_id=58113918&segment_id=24285&te=1&uri=nyt%3A%2F%2Fnewsletter%2Fac8d8ca7-c873-4cac-9a21-7ae4ff9b9643&user_id=b2e1de300120f94a8ffa22f0a3f4847f

messaging-custom-newsletters.nytimes.com One highlight of my week was crying in the car on my way to the grocery store. That sounds bleak as hell, but let me explain. I was alone, with no one asking me to do anything for 15 solid minutes, listening to music of my choosing that was in no way affiliated with Disney.
