Stratford Partnership, in collaboration with Stratford Junior Woman’s Club and Town of Stratford Economic Development, has a new initiative to get Stratford families talking!
Our 'Restaurant Edition' Conversation Cards debuted during Stratford’s annual Restaurant Week from April 23 — 29, 2017 on the tables of over 30 participating restaurants. Each Conversation Card has a question, such as What is the best way to spend a rainy day? or What makes you laugh the hardest? While waiting to order or to eat, the cards hope to inspire diners to put down their cell phones and participate in fun, positive conversations.
These Conversation Cards build upon the Search Institute's Asset #2 Positive Family Communication. The Search Institute’s 40 developmental assets promote healthy development in children and teens, from healthy self esteem, positive peer influence to preventing the use of alcohol, marijuana and other drugs. Special thanks to all the restaurants for being a part of an Asset Building Community, to Stratford's Asset Building Classroom Asset Ambassadors for the great questions, and to our friends from Southington STEPS (SouthingtonSteps.org) for this phenomenal idea!!
