Social Media Plan for Elementary Parents starting November 18

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 playing Mahjong Tiles). And if you missed our first post explaining what all this is, take a second to get up to speed by clicking here!

If Pampers and Goldfish are more your speed, check out our First Look blog for the social media plan to connect parents with preschoolers: http://orangeblogs.org/firstlook

Or if you are surrounded by boy bands and learners permits, try our social media plan for connecting parents and students at: http://orangeblogs.org/xp3students

This week we are supplying you with 6 tweets, 3 Facebook posts with Facebook Timeline photos, 2 pictures for Instagram, and 2 articles to pin on Pinterest. Feel free to use these posts however you wish. Want to get a little crazy and swap Monday’s tweet with Wednesday’s? Go right ahead! Feel like posting a different picture to Instagram? We don’t mind! 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 Monday November 18th and follow this social media plan. If you have any questions, suggestions for content or an exceptionally cute picture of your cat, please share in the comment section below this post. Until next week, Happy Tweeting!

 

Twitter:

  • Monday: Yesterday, your child learned that who they hang out with may be more important that they thought.
  • Tuesday:   At dinner ask: A chameleon changes colors to match its surroundings. How do you change based on who you are around?
  • Wednesday: We spend so much time worrying about our children’s peers. What about the other adults in their lives? http://orangeparents.org/never-parent-alone/
  • Thursday: At bedtime tonight, read about a young king who listened to the wrong friends. 1 Kings 12:1-15a
  • Friday: How do you become successful as a parent? http://orangeparents.org/parent-link-live/
  • Saturday: We all hope our children find “good” friends. Are we teaching them to be good friends? http://orangeparents.org/the-includers/

  • Thursday:    Batman and Robin. Buzz and Woody. Phineas and Ferb. All the greatest stories happen when people team up with others. But do you think Batman’s story would be the same if he teamed up with The Joker? What if Woody teamed up with Sid? Or Phineas became buds with Doof? This week, make sure you spend some time with wise friends. Don’t know how to tell if they are wise? Ask a trusted adult what they think. Then, invite those friends over for a movie night. Rally a couple teams for flag football. Get together in your yard, cul-de-sac or a nearby park. Or you could try just going on a walk together and getting to know each other a little better You never know, if you choose your friends wisely you may just become the next internationally known ultimate crime-stopping duo. (…or just have a lot of cool stories to tell.)
