November is about giving thanks, and today we want to shout out a critical part of our distribution network: our partners! Without them, we would not have been able to distribute over 8 million diapers to date in 2021 (already 2 million more than we distributed throughout all of 2020)! They’re doing amazing work in the community providing healthcare, childcare, housing assistance, food, and more – together we can work to make the world a better place!

Thanks FACETS, CentroNía, and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington for posing!

Teachers/Providers: Don’t worry; YOU Got This! In this video, filmed before the spread of COVID-19, CentroNía tackles one of the many forms of family engagement. Watch the video here: http://bit.ly/2TFrtZh #MDBack2School #MDFamiliesEngage
The nonprofit, Advancing Parenting, would like to share a rather unusual and free resource for promoting positive childhood experiences and preventing adverse childhood experiences...

parenting norms bumper stickers.

Advancing Parenting makes them available at no cost to schools, businesses, organizations, and clinics. There are fifty-two in a set and each 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 for friends, family, and community members to share parenting wisdom. 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 given away at events and/or put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to request this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.
