“Your Best/Worst Holiday Parenting Moments! ”
Share YOUR Story and WIN!
This time of year brings about many memories. Some of them are of the best moments you created with your child that you will hold near and dear to your heart forever. Then there are some moments, you just want to forget, like a beloved family member degrading your parenting style! It could be a touching, heartfelt story or example of how to handle criticism gracefully (or what happened and what you wish you would have said/done in the moment instead). Sharing your experience through video, audio or written story can support and educate other parents so they can create warm and loving memories or avoid making those not so desired circumstances.
When you enter this month’s contest and share your best/worst holiday parenting moments, you have the chance to win one of this month’s prizes, a “Holiday Parenting Gift Package”! Go to the contest directions page for details. You’ll find all the details and the contest directions for how to make a submission or score the greatest number of points (and possibly WIN one of the more than $6,000 in prizes!) when you get started right now.
Don’t have a story to submit? No problem!
You can still participate in the contest by accumulating points for “voting” for your favorite story or sharing with others in your social network. Just join the Pinterest, Facebook and/or Twitter communities to see the entries and earn points.
This month’s prize is the T.I.P.S. Online Training Package (for non-grads) or the Grad Upgrade Package (for grads), valued at over $6,000. Toolshop® Leaders and Experts get to choose their prize.
