Show Me How! School Initiative Nominations Open Today!
The school bells are already ringing, announcing the start of a new school year.
Here at Positive Parental Participation, we are joining the celebration.
We believe that building self-esteem is of critical importance. Do you?
Studies show that children with a positive self-image:
- Are more likely to take on new challenges
- Have greater school success
- Make friends more easily
- Do not become bullies or the victims of bullies
Many children are in school for eight hours a day. Little ones in daycare facilities while their parents are working may be there for even longer periods of time.
Isn’t it important for teachers and other child-care providers to have the best resources available to succeed in this important task?
Not only an award-winning parenting resource…it’s also a wonderful addition to any classroom bookshelf.
”It will be an excellent resource for our Family Literacy Center’s programs” – Rhonda Cooper, Program Director, Literacy Volunteers of Leon County, FL
Many local teachers have purchased their own copy to place in their classrooms…there is even a copy on the shelves of the teacher-education department at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
“We will add it to our collection in support of our Educational Studies Program.” – Celia Rabinowitz, Director of the Library, St. Mary’s College of Maryland
“It is a great tool to help our children become successful.” – Mary Newquist, Assistant Principal, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School, Selma, TX
What school would you like to see receive a copy of Show Me How?
If you’d like your favorite school to win a copy, just leave a comment on any blog post here this month.
Nominations will remain open through the end of September…we will announce the twelve lucky winners early in October, picked by Random.org.
As with the Show Me How Library Project, I will send the books to the people who nominated the winning schools. If you would like to review the book on your blog if your school wins a copy, please let me know in your comment.
“This book is an incredible resource for fostering a child’s sense of self-worth.” – Jodi Harap, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Chicago, IL
