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, June 23, 2019. This is considered week four of the June 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.

Sunday: Simeon chose to be patient and he finally got to see the promised Savior, Jesus. Jesus gives us the power to be patient too. Watch the video on the App http://bit.ly/2ijFJc6
Monday: Fill a paper bag with treats. Write a time on the bag. Tell your child you’re going to play a waiting game. When the clock says the time on the bag, they can open it. Until then, they have to wait patiently, just like Simeon waited to see Jesus.
Tuesday: Do you struggle to connect with your kid because you don’t have much in common with them? It’s possible, but it’s gonna take some work and it’s gonna take a little bit of humility. Read more: https://theparentcue.org/the-humility-of-connection/
Wednesday: Tell your child to pick some toy “friends” to put in the bath. While you bathe your child, ask him to tell you what he likes about each friend. Say, “Do you know what I like about our friend, Jesus? Jesus gives us the power to do everything!”
Thursday: Write down 15 – 20 fun or helpful activities on popsicle sticks. Put them in a mason jar in a central location in your house. Anytime someone complains of being “bored” this summer, have them draw a stick and complete what it says.
Friday: As you drive, look for things that need power. When you see something, say the name of the object and what it needs power to do. Talk about how we need power to have love, joy, peace, patience, and kindness. Jesus gives us the power to do everything!
Saturday: Cuddle and pray, “Dear God, sometimes it’s hard for us to choose to be patient when things don’t happen like we want them to or when we want them to. Help us remember You have given us the power to wait with a happy heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
