Poster Children for Poster Children


Every day, thousands of children must go without causes to represent. And every day, thousands of posters are printed with no children to promote their causes. Please, don’t let your poster go without a sad child’s face.

So, I’ve been deeply mired in working on my poster for this conference. One of the things I’ve been doing is selecting good examples from my data to illustrate my points. So-called “poster children” examples.

What with the craziness of work, making travel arrangements, as well as loads of other family and life obligations, I have had no time for blogging. Either the writing or the reading. This makes me sad. Clearly I need a poster child to express this sadness.

In other news, the Just Posts are coming right up. If there are posts from August that you’d like us to include, send them along!

  1. Count me in to join your cause! I think we can connect hundreds of poster children with toddler travesties like-

    1) CDS- (Cookie Depletion Syndrome) “Won’t you give this child just one more cookie?”

    2) Diaper Denial Disease – Against misdiagnosis of the smellies “My diaper is NOT dirty mommy”

    3) Pre-mature bedtime – “When was the last time you listened to your child? He said ‘I don’t wanna go to bed'”

  2. Ok. I clicked over feeling more than a little exhausted and a bit cranky and still a little sorry for myself after the 11th … And now I am having a hard time typing because you’ve got me laughing out loud!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    And good luck with the poster!
