Racking your brain for a way to provoke meaningful conversations between parents and their elementary kids in less than 140 characters? Well, rack no more!
Below, you will find everything you need to cue parents this week through every major social media outlet from Twitter to Pinterest (so you can focus your brain power on posting the really important stuff—like that picture you just took of your cat standing in a puddle). And if you missed our first post explaining what all this is, take a second to get up to speed by clicking here!

You can simply copy and paste the words below or add a little flare of your own to any and all posts. These posts should start going out on Sunday, March 1 and follow this social media plan.
