what is the parent cue?
It’s not an encyclopedia on everything you need to know. It’s not an exhaustive training course to make sure your kids “turn out”. It’s not a counseling hotline you can call when you have a help-I-can’t-believe-my-child-just . . .- crisis. This blog is a cue. It’s a prompt. Because really, we know you’re already incredibly busy doing all the things you should do to invest in your kids and to help them on their way to adulthood—and hopefully out of your house. But just because you are really busy doing great things doesn’t mean it’s easy to stay focused on what’s important. That’s where we come in. We want to make it easy for you to remember what’s important.
IF YOU’RE LIKE US, AND MOST OF THE PARENTS WE KNOW . . .
You probably aren’t looking for more information, you want better information. You aren’t hoping for more responsibility, you want deeper relationships You don’t need more activities, you want your activity to matter more.
OUR GOAL IS . . .
To remind you why what you do is so important. To help you focus on what matters most. To discover parenting along with you, so you know you’re not in this alone. Not all at once. Just little by little.
WEEK BY WEEK.
We want to cue you so you can make the most of the weeks you have with your kids.
WHY WE LOVE THE COLOR ORANGE:
No, we are not avid Tennessee Football fans, but we love the color Orange. This has more to do with something you learned in kindergarten: Orange is what you get when you combine red with yellow. When you paint with red, you get only what red can do. When you paint with yellow, you get what only yellow can do. When you paint with orange, you get new possibilities and vibrant outcomes. We want parents to know that when they connect to a wider community, they have a greater impact in the life of a child than they could ever have alone.
