Ideas For Successful Parenting

    P - is for patience because it takes time to grow up.


    A - is for active involvement in your child's life

          --know who they know

          --know where they are

          --know what they are doing

          --knowing who and what they are seeing

          --knowing who and what they are listening to


     R - is for the responsibility we have to provide guidance--even when

           our children don't want it.


     E - is for expecting the best from them at all times

          --as a person

          --as a student


     N - is for nurturing our children in ways that make them feel loved,

          wanted and safe.


     T - is for teaching them life's important values

          --respect for themselves, their families, their cultures and others




          --self discipline


     I - is for insisting that our children follow our rules and insisting

   that we are consistent and fair when we give consequences for not being          obedient.


     N - is for never giving up on them, even when they fail.


     G - is for giving them all the love we can give without end.


                 “It takes a village to raise a child.”
