    Dear Uplift Families,


    I am writing to inform your organization of a free event, “Raising Connected, Happy, Successful Kids through the Arts” by Erica Curtis on Sat., Feb. 29, 2020, 1:30 pm until 2:30 pm, Eccles Performing Arts Center, Dixie State University, St. George. (Curtis’s session is free, open to the public; no ticket required.) Visit www.TherapyWithErica.com to learn more.


    This session is part of a day-long conference, The Creative Age: Arts Across the Life Span that features another keynote and 14-breakout sessions from Utah and California based artists and therapists.


    Jeremy Nobel, MD, MPH, and founder of the Foundation for Art and Healing will deliver the opening keynote on the isolation epidemic that has distributed the social fabric of America. Utah has the 6th highest suicide rate and has 7th fastest aging rate in the nation. Isolation is a real problem.


    Dr. Nobel will address how the creative expression and participation in the arts is good for your mental and physical health.


    Registration for the full conference (including breakfast and lunch) is only $50. Use promo code UHEA save $10. Learn more at www.artswashco.com or www.engageutah.org


    It seems to me that our missions are aligned and I would appreciate the opportunity to collaborate. Can you help me get the word out?


    I would be glad to distribute your literature at the conference.

    Hey there.


    I’m interested in writing an article for your website. The piece would discuss life insurance 101 for young people and offer practical advice on the basics, including info on who needs life insurance and the different types available. There would be no charge. Are you interested?


    Thanks.

    Hello,


    When my first child was born, I wanted to put him in a bubble. From soft spots to sleep positions, there were so many things I worried about. But do you know what made me the most nervous? Driving him around in the car.


    I constantly worried, Is the car seat installed correctly? What should I do if my brakes fail or I have some other kind of mechanical issue while he’s in the car? Is the radio too loud? Should I give him his blanket, or is that a safety hazard?


    I’d like to write an article for your readers that includes driving safety and car maintenance tips for new parents. The article will be free and unique to your website.


    If you’re open to receiving an article, please let me know.


    Thank you for your consideration!

    Daniel

    Hi,


    I’d love to write a gift guide for new parents. Any interest in posting it on your site?


    I’ll be sure to include options that will help new moms and dads come out of the holiday with items that will actually make their lives a little easier.


    Thank you!

    Hi!


    Being a parent is the greatest joy I’ve ever known, but I think any parent would agree when I say it’s also been the biggest challenge. I was reminded this a couple months ago when I was trying to get my youngest to clean his room. One meltdown later (by him, not me – although I was close!), I realized he really didn’t have any sense of responsibility, not even for his own bedroom or his beloved toys.


    It got me thinking that this is an experience a lot of parents probably have at one time or another, and while teaching our kids a sense of responsibility over the various aspects of their lives is important, it’s not always easy. That gave me the idea to reach out to sites like yours and offer what I think is a helpful list of ideas for teaching our kids about being responsible:


    How to Create a Culture of Accountability in Your Home

    https://www.empoweringparents.com/article/how-to-create-a-culture-of-accountability-in-your-home/


    The Ultimate List of Age-Appropriate Chores for Your Child (and How to Get Them Excited to Pitch In!)

    https://www.homeadvisor.com/r/the-ultimate-list-of-chores-for-your-child-get-them-excited/


    Six Ways To Teach Your Kids About Saving Money

    https://windgatewealth.com/six-ways-to-teach-your-kids-about-saving-money/


    Teaching Kids About Responsible Pet Care

    https://www.fetchpetcare.com/blog/teaching-kids-about-responsible-pet-care/


    Developing Good Homework Habits

    https://www.parents.com/kids/education/homework/developing-good-homework-habits/


    If there is anything you see on this list that you think would be helpful for the parents who visit your site, I encourage you to add them to one of your pages (maybe this one? – http://upliftfamilies.org/resource). It’s good information to have, obviously, but can be a pain to find.


    Enjoy!


    My best,

    Colleen Stewart

    Hi there,


    Halloween is a BIG deal at my house. But as a single dad, I have to be very careful not to overspend when it comes to costumes, candy and decorations.


    A big part of my Halloween prep game plan is researching ahead of time to see which stores have the best deals and coupons.


    I hate to hog all these savings, so this year, I thought I’d share some of what I’m finding. I’d like to write an article for your website with info on which stores (e.g. Target, Walmart, Amazon) have the best Halloween deals.


    If you think this would make a good article, please hit reply and I’ll send it over soon.


    Happy Halloween!

    Hello, I don’t know if this is the right site or not. Or who I can go through. I have a 20 year old son that is living with me and his stepdad. We think our son has a mental disorder. Because of he talks to himself, he thinks everyone is out to get him, talking about him. He has stated some info about he wishes his stepdad was dead and when he does die him and his brother are going to laugh and make fun of him. He calls us names. He thinks we are the problem not him. He has worked. He doesn’t work now. But he will not help us out with house work or yard work nothing. He doesn’t want to get a drivers license. Who can we call to get our son HELP. We don’t want him in Jail there is no need for that, but we do think he his schizophrenia.

    Hi,


    “Mom, can we go to Disney to meet Mickey?!”


    For years, my heart broke when I heard those words. I was a single parent, and I just wasn’t sure that I would ever be able to afford to take my kids on the Disney trip of our dreams. I imagine it’s the same way for many families with children with special needs, as well as foster and adoptive families. Heck, for a lot of two-parent households, a vacation to the most magical place on earth is a budgetary stretch.


    But do you know what? Last fall, I did it. I didn’t have to tap into the kids’ college fund, and I didn’t have to eat ramen noodles for months. It took a lot of planning and preparation, but it was so worth it. My kids really did have a magical time, and so did I.


    Now, I’d like to share my methods, in hopes that it will help another family do the same, whether they rely on a single income, or there are other circumstances that make money a little tight. I’m working on a blog post now — it’s gonna be about 750 words long and full of practical tips that any parent can use. Can I send it to you (for free) to post on your site? I think it may be just the type of information your readers are looking for, and it could even bring you some new ones. :)


    Just let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll send it right over. Thanks so much!


    Alexis

    Hello,

    I noticed that your site is linking to pages that discuss addiction and I thought I would reach out to you about the great work you are already doing.

    My name is Ella Mendoza, and I am a member of the Content Team at Addictions.com, a site that helps people find resources for recovery from substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders. We believe that community connections are key to reaching those in need.

    While millions of people struggle daily with addiction to drugs or alcohol, we want to build awareness of the resources that are available to help. That is why all of the content on Addictions.com is medically reviewed by a team of doctors, nurses, and therapists, ensuring we always have the most up to date information. You can learn more about our medical team, and the high quality of our content standards here: https://www.addictions.com/our-contributors/

    Would you be so kind as to provide me with the contact information of your site’s Content Manager, so that I may discuss possibly adding Addictions.com as a resource on your page?

    Thank you for your time,

    Ella

    Consider making our fifty-three parenting norms bumper stickers available to the attendees at your events/conferences. Parenting norms on vehicles will be read 1000s of times by 1000s of people of all ages for years to come…a unique and powerful way to get quality parenting information out to the community. Visit advancingparenting.org to read about what we do, why we do it, our plans for the future, and how to order sets of the fifty-three parenting norms bumper stickers.


    The best strategy is to have them laid out on three tables… and it does take three tables. Tell the attendees that they may choose one or two for their car(s). Handing them out doesn’t work as well. Some folks don’t put stickers on their cars and everyone who wants one will appreciate the opportunity to make their own choice.

    Hello! I am so excited that I came across your website. I live in Cedar City, UT and my husband and I are coming to the parenting conference. Wow, thank you for doing this. I think it’s amazing! A few months ago I started the Iron County Parents Coalition. I am actively searching for ways to help us get started. I would love to receive any advice that you have to offer. My passion is helping the children/youth but I believe that adults need to help themselves in order to be able to help the youth. That’s why I love your name and I love your mission statement. You’re basically doing what I want to do in Southern Utah. I don’t want to waste time “reinventing the wheel” but I want to use the resources that we have in Southern Utah. There are so many good, helpful, passionate people in our area. I want to help organize that and make a difference in the lives of my community members. Collin Kartchner is actually the one that inspired me to start a parents coalition. I am looking forward to learning more. Thank you for your time!

    Good Morning,


    I’m writing you to see if you are open to adding a new valuable resource for your students on your page, www.upliftfamilies.org/resource?


    My name is Samantha and I work with Drugrehab.com, a free online resource that provides information about adolescent bullying, addiction, and mental health issues.


    We recently published an educational guide about bullying and substance abuse:


    www.drugrehab.com/guides/bullying/


    I believe this guide would be a valuable resource to share with your students and parents. Would you consider adding it on your page to help spread awareness?


    Thank you for your time. Have a great rest of your day!

    Hi,


    For parents of newborns, it can be difficult to find time for romance in between feedings and diaper changes.


    I’d love to offer some advice to exhausted couples on how they can find time to connect after the birth of their baby.


    Will you please let me know if you’d be interested in posting my guest article on this topic?


    Thanks for your time!

    Hi there,


    As you likely know, a pregnancy can cost anywhere from $9,000 – $250,000 (https://www.thebump.com/a/how-much-pregnancy-costs), depending on whether the mother has health insurance.


    But that amount doesn’t even take into account other pregnancy necessities, such as maternity clothes, pregnancy books, prenatal vitamins, morning sickness meds, sleep aids (body pillows, noise machines, and earplugs), stretch mark prevention cream, and more—that are essential for getting through any pregnancy comfortably (or as comfortably as possible!)


    Can I write a guest article for your website? I’d like to offer advice on budget-friendly pregnancy prep. My hope is that the tips and resources provided will help alleviate at least some of the money worries new moms face.


    If you’re interested, please let me know, and I’ll get started on the article.


    Thank you!

    Emily
