+Works is pleased to announce its new 104-page +™Parenting guide, now available on CD via this website (see “Order +Works +Family Materials” button) and at future +Works public events. This updated and “beefed up” guide reflects learnings from a year’s work that has included speaking with and listening to hundreds of parents, educators, pediatricians and mental health professionals — and a great deal of research on the subjects of bullying, school and community climate, child development, neuroscience, and public health.
“We are very proud of this new guide and hope it will spark authentic, fresh, and positive community discussions in our home town of Houston and beyond,” said Sarah Fisher, CEO of +Works. +Works has updated its +™Teaching guide for its aspiring +™Schools as well, following and furthering the organization’s original concept of promoting a consistent philosophy and messaging to children from home to homeroom. “We continue to believe that a community is a place where your neighbors help you raise your children. Getting on the same page as families and educators — recognizing that we are all in this together — is, we believe, the most effective way to get ahead of this issue,” said Fisher.
+™Parenting guides on CD cost $15 plus Texas state sales tax for Texas residents. The full +™Family membership costs $25 and includes a +™Parenting CD and a packet of +™Visuals, which place gentle reminders where negative behaviors tend to happen. +™Visual packets are also available separately for $15.
