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.
this is so amazing! i’m so proud of you ❤️

Gen Z is stressed, burned out, and doesn't plan to stop the Great Resignation

The next several decades will be so interesting to study further with these two generations. We are a rare breed.

Gen Z is stressed, burned out, and doesn't plan to stop the Great Resignation Nearly half of the youngest workers in a Deliotte survey said they are stressed 'all or most of the time.' Their top reason: Finances.

I decided to share a tiny bit of my journal entry today; my hope is to inspire 😉 women and friends to look inward first and always when you are facing internal battles about who you are "supposed to be" and how you think you are "supposed to" show up for others.

We need to stop seeking freedom and healing from the permission and external validation of others. Stop trying to prove to others who you are , and who you are not. Just start doing the work within for YOU.

Maybe your freedom can free someone else.

Please like, share, and comment below if you read something that inspired you in the entry. I'd love to read about it.

There are many reasons to give therapy a try, but couldn't we all use a little more self awareness, acceptance, healing, and better relationships?⁠

📓Journal Prompt: In what ways might therapy help me grow? If you are already in therapy, the prompt is: Am I truly being honest, open-minded, and willing in the process? What have I not shared, and why?

Self-compassion: being intentionally accepting and loving toward oneself in the midst of personal failures, feelings of inadequacy or guilt, and any other form of emotional discomfort. You must give yourself permission to feel hurt, sadness, disappointment, and fear. Don't forget to name them when they (the feelings) arrive.

When it comes to self-love and acceptance, you must not judge your thoughts and emotions.

Refrain from saying things like "I shouldn't feel like this; I know it's petty. Why am I letting this bother me? I'm so stupid. I am for real crazy."

Just allow yourself to notice the thoughts and name the emotions. Then whisper gently, "it's ok. I am ok. I am safe in this moment."

Then inhale deeply. Hold your breath for 4-7 seconds. Exhale slowly through the mouth. Notice what that felt like. Repeat until the body is relaxed.

I am guilty! I still have to work on this one sometimes. Louder and profane doesn't mean more powerful and effective. When you set boundaries, it can be done calmly and directly without an increase in volume and demeaning tone. The message gets lost sometimes in the delivery. Make it count.

Good hygiene is among the basics of self-love and care.
Shower daily. 🚿
Brush your teeth in the morning and at night, or after each meal. 🦷
Wash your hands after using the restroom and before preparing food for yourself and others.
Keep your hair clean and tidy.
Maintain clean clothes. Panties (drawls lol) should be washed after each wear. Bras can be washed after every 2-3 wears.

The things you will need to do to love you more may upset the people who have received benefits from your unhealthiness. That's ok. They will either be inspired, resentful, or envious. Which one is entirely up to them. ⁠
