Public health authorities like the American Academy of Pediatrics, the CDC, the NIH, and the Harvard Center on the Developing Child should put together a list of parenting behaviors and practices generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Then these organizations should partner with the Ad Council to create public service announcements to communicate these behaviors and practices to the public. I’m thinking billboards especially…radio and television too. These psa’s would not have an end date. They would become a permanent fixture of our culture. In manufacturing there’s a concept called continuous quality improvement. Well, this would be an effort to continuously improve the quality of parenting. Our children and children's children deserve this.
In its own unique way my nonprofit Advancing Parenting is already doing this.
