On Tuesday, May 3rd, Family Resources will become The Parenting Place – for grown-ups who care about kids.
So – if you’ve taken a second look at this blog, scratched your head, wondered what happened – don’t worry. You’re in the right place. This is the same Parent Pulse as always only now brought to you by The Parenting Place – for grown-ups who care about kids.
I love our new name, the beautiful logo and the message behind it. It is, after all, parents and grown-ups who care about kids that we work for and with to help expand and support their efforts to “parent” children in the most positive, confident and resourceful ways possible.
Over the past 20 years, we have worked with so many parents, childcare professionals, grandparents, extended families, teachers, medical professionals. And in each of these roles, the adults are seeking information and support to “parent” kids, whether their own or others they care about, most effectively.
For what has perhaps become somewhat of an overused cliche, still, however, rings true. “It takes a village to raise a child.”
Our name and logo will be different, but our mission is clear and unchanged. You can count on The Parenting Place – for grownups who care about kids – to be there for you in all the ways we have been in the past.
I’m excited that all this fits in so perfectly with The Parenting Place’s upcoming Fun Day on Saturday, May 7th – Hearts in the Park from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. at Myrick Park in La Cross.
It will be a celebration of mothers – or anyone who is a significant person in your child’s life – grandmas, aunts, sisters, neighbors, teachers, friends. They can honor each of them by writing their name on a heart and hanging it on one of the designated bushes or small trees; then fill out a postcard that we’ll send to let this special person know of this tribute.
There will be mother’s day crafts for the children to make, treats and fun activities as well as the significance of recognizing those in our lives whose caring and influence we value.
I hope to see many of you there. I believe it is always impressive for children when they actively participate in tokens of appreciation and respect.
Registration is required by calling The Parenting Place – 784-8125.
Remember – The Parenting Place – for grown-ups who care about kids.
You’re in the right place!
