Advancing Parenting is a grassroots, Bakersfield, CA based nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring the quality of parenting in communities. Toward that end, we place concise and unambiguous parenting tips in public spaces, including but not limited to windows of stores, offices, restaurants, automobiles, lawn signs, and electronic billboards. This, in an effort to raise the quality of parenting and thereby reduce child abuse, substance abuse, domestic violence, crime, and improve educational outcomes for children.
Our plan is to 1) employ increasingly impactful media to display the parenting tips, and 2) expand geographically until Advancing Parenting's activities are a national phenomenon.
This will take millions of dollars, but the return on investment and reduction in human suffering will be well worth it.
Visit advancingparenting.org to see the list of fifty parenting tips. They have recently been adjusted to reflect social norms theory.
