Here is the First Look Social Media Plan for influencing parents to interact with their preschoolers. If you missed the first post explaining our plan, please click here. The following information will be 7 tweets/Facebook posts, 2 pictures or ideas for Instagram, and 2 articles to pin on Pinterest. Feel free to use any and all of this information but don’t feel tied to these updates word for word. These are simply examples that you could copy and paste if you wanted or you can add your own personality. These posts should start going out on Sunday, August 26, 2018. This is considered week four of the August curriculum. If you have any questions, suggestions, or even content that other people could use to help influence parents for this week then please leave your comments below the post.

Wednesday: Add a fun wind-up bath toy to bath time this month. Each time you wind the toy, ask your child which way he/she thinks it will go. Talk about how we should always go God’s way because God’s way is perfect. Note: Amazon has a large selection.
Thursday: Have you ever felt insecure as a parent? Maybe you’ve looked around and thought everyone else has this parenting thing down but you? Or you hear so many different takes on the right way to do things that you’re not sure which one is best? Take a minute to admit to yourself that you’re not going to get everything right (even if there were a right way to do things). Your kid doesn’t need a perfect parent, they just need you!

Saturday: Cuddle with your child and pray, “Dear God, You are so awesome and wise. I’m so thankful we can trust what You tell us to do, even when we don’t understand. I pray [child’s name] will follow You always. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
