Featured Book: Stopping At Every Lemonade Stand: How to Create a Culture That Cares for Kids

Stopping At Every Lemonade Stand: How to Create a Culture That Cares for Kids By James Vollbracht
Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand offers a wealth of ideas and suggestions on how we can reconnect our culture and turn it into a safe and nurturing environment for our children to grow-up.
James Vollbracht’s common sense research is based around the 6 interconnected circles of community: personal, families, neighborhoods, larger communities, business worlds, and elders; and offers simple actions that each of us can take to support our children in need.
He shows us how the power of one person can start a quiet revolution toward healing our broken communities and helping children at risk.
For example in the chapter “Connecting the Neighborhood Dots”, Mr Vollbracht lists,
 Five Easy Ways you can create a Kid-Friendly Neighborhood:
  1. Agree to abide by neighborhood speed limits and post “Slow” signs.
  2. Buy whatever kids who come to your door are selling.
  3. Put up an adjustable basketball hoop so kids and adults can gather, shoot hoops, and have fun
  4. Take your kids with you when you help out a senior (shovel a walk, buy groceries).
  5. Set out a bench on your front porch and engage kids who pass by to visit with you.
To learn more about connecting your neighborhood and helping to keep kids safe why don’t you sign up for our next Front Porch Project training.
