A “JUST IN TIME” PARENTING UPDATE 03/29/11

Just In Time Parenting  (JITP) Community of Practice March 2011 Update

Welcome to the JITP March Update 🙂

WORK GROUP SESSIONS TAKING PLACE IN CHICAGO, LOUISVILLE AND ORLANDO!

Are you considering the possibility of attending any of these 2011 conferences?

If so, the JITP Team enthusiastically invites you to join them during any of the workgroup sessions they will be scheduling around these conference opportunities.  Look for session scheduling information in future updates.

Your ideas and involvement are vital to the ability of JITP to move forward and make the national impact it strives for.  Even if you can’t attend any face-to-face meetings, you can participate in the same way that the JITP team normally works throughout the year — via email and Web 2.0 tools. Contact one of the JITP team leaders to find out more.

JITP SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLS

NEW!  We now have a JITP parenting blog and we are currently seeking guest bloggers. Our tag line is this:  “Child development experts with real lives, real families and real challenges.”  Do you have something to add to the conversation?

To get started as a guest blogger, contact a member of the JITP leadership team (Marissa.stone@gmail.com or abellel@auburn.edu ). We will help you get set up in the system to blog.  If you are familiar with WordPress you will feel right at home.  If you have never used WordPress before please see the following video to help you get started.  If you would like to be listed on the Guest Bloggers page, please send a short bio along with an image to  Marissa Stone and we will add you to the list. Happy Blogging and we look forward to reading your posts!
