Uplift Families & TIPS Video

A few months ago I had the great privilege of being involved with Uplift Families, an internet/video resource initiative from Utah's First Lady, Jeanette Herbert.  The videos from this year's conference are starting to be released and I want to share my favorite one with you today, as well as an excerpt of the write-up I shared on A Local Wander.

The program is three-fold in mission:

  1. Provide a comprehensive online parenting resource for issues every parent encounters
  2. Provide short parenting TIPS (Teaching Important Parenting Skills) via videos
  3. Host an annual Parenting Conference
Each of these resources is unique and helpful in it's own way, and we'd love to break them down a little bit for you...

This website is designed as a resource for parents to answer questions and provide answers on any topic you may be having with your child.  In some instances it can also direct you to places to find more help or speak with a professional in that field.  (Note: the information provided is not specific only to Utah.  It's a great resource for parents anywhere)

Parenting Resources
Information is broken down by age, parenting topic, and resource location
Ages covered range from infancy to the late teen years, and topics cover everything from behavior issues to spectrum disorders, eating disorders to sleeping patterns, bullying to Internet safety.  The site functions as a one-stop shop for parents.

Styled in the same vein as the very popular TED Talks, these are recordings from the Uplift Families Parenting Conference.  They are entertaining and also straight-forward and to the point. Watch this humorous and heartfelt talk from renowned relationship expert, Matt Townsend...

I'd encourage you to look around both the website and the videos-there is such great information there.  And share this post with anyone you think might enjoy it!
