Emma Pillsbury's Brochures Galore! 

In case you didn't recognize the reference above, one of the most iconic portrayals of a School Counselor is right on National TV! FOX's GLEE features a character named Emma Pillsbury, a School Counselor who hands out pamphlets to students on almost any subject possible. 

While most Counselors should not be using Pamphlets as their main form of counseling students, some programs provide information to parents and families in brochure form that Parents are happy to access in difficult situations.  Luckily for my readers--I found an organization that publishes all 16 of their brochures online, for FREE

Children's Home Society
    The following FREE Brochures come from the Children's Home Society, based in California.  The brochures are easily downloaded from their website and contain great tips and tricks for parents on the following subjects: 
  • Choosing Child Care
  • Communication
  • Exercise
  • Managing Anger
  • Food for Your Baby's First Year
  • Family Time
  • Positive Discipline
  • Safety
  • Nutrition
  • Self-Esteem
  • Separation
  • Sleep
  • Staying Healthy
  • Special Needs
  • Stress
  • Toilet Teaching (Without Tears)
  • When a Child Bites
  • When is your Child too Ill to go to Child Care? 

Creating Your Own Pamphlets
    While many of the sections of their brochures and pamphlets feature California-based information, I encourage you to make your own informational pamphlets for parents on similar topics for your own personal use or even after a Parent workshop! 

        I hope this post inspires you to create your own Pamphlets and Brochures that would be great enough for Emma Pillsbury's Counseling Office! 

                        Happy Monday!
