Hereโ€™s a quote from John Briere, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus Psychiatry and the Behavioral Science, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California

โ€œIf we could somehow end child abuse and neglect, the eight hundred pages of DSMโ€ฆwould be shrunk to a pamphlet in two generations.โ€

Parenting education must be part of the solution. Not conventional parenting education, but an entirely new kind that reaches everyone, everywhere.

Visit www.advancingparenting.org. In our own low tech way we are pioneering this new kind of parenting education.
We're proud to announce that our internal staff has donated to a local charity, CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness)

CAPA is a great organization that works hard to help children who have been abused and neglected. They do this by providing services, education, and advocacy for the children in our community.

We love the work they do, and we're thrilled that our internal staff chose to support them this quarter.
Juli Morgan and Shelly had fun celebrating Insa Raymondโ€™s retirement from the Hillsdale County MSU Extension. Weโ€™re so going to miss her voice on Saturday mornings and at the Hillsdale County Fair broadcasts! We wished her all the best (in German of course) and enjoyed food from Market House, Inc. and The Olivia's Chop House.๐Ÿ˜Š Then we got a quick tour with Christie Campbell of the CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness) officesโ€ฆJuli creeped out the poor babies. ๐Ÿ‘ถ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
We got our tickets! Did you get yours yet? Itโ€™s going to be a great night in support of a great cause. Thank you CAPA for organizing everything!
Great updates for CAPA! Thank you Christie!
We are always happy to support our local Hillsdale community and CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness)
Christie @ CAPA is here to help you keep your baby safe!
Having an Advancing Parenting bumper sticker on your car is so interesting!

At stoplights you can watch drivers read the message and then desperately search for their phone so they can take a picture of it before the light turns green. This happens almost every time I drive my car! Presumably the photos are being shared on social media.

If thereโ€™s a passenger or passengers someone will read it and comment, then everyone in the car reads it and conversations start up. Itโ€™s wonderful to see people discussing parenting!

Iโ€™ve never seen people take pictures of bumper stickers before. Itโ€™s really a phenomenon! I think itโ€™s because thereโ€™s a very real need for quality parenting information and people are pleased to see it displayed in this public way.

Just a reminder that Monday is the CAPA Annual Golf Outing. We love helping support this great organization thatโ€™s sole purpose is to help prevent abuse and neglect of the children of Hillsdale county. With that in mind, along with sponsoring this event, for everyone that takes a picture in front of our sponsorship and post the picture in the comments or on our business page, we will donate an extra $10 to CAPA. We will also donate a total of $20 for anyone that posts a picture AND comes in for an insurance quote (current State Farm customers are not eligible for this). Letโ€™s have a great time on Monday and support this great organization!

**Pictures and quotes must be completed by 8/13/21 to be eligible**
