U Got This - Text messages for parents and caregivers Parenting can be stressful during the best of times. Throw in a pandemic, uncertainty in school and work schedules, financial worries and civil unrest, parenting can be overwhelming. We know that you’ve got this, and we want to support you during this time. University of Minnesota Extension, Center for Family Development is offering a free text messaging program that supports parents and caregivers of children birth to 18 years of age, called U Got This. We invite parents and caregivers to sign up to receive two text messages a week throughout the school year on topics of health and nutrition, developmental affirmations, parenting and school engagement, mental health and well-being and financial capability. To sign up to receive U Got This text messages, go to https://z.umn.edu/ugotthis. This program is free, but be aware some fees may apply depending on your cellphone service provider.
