PARENTS

1. Be a student at being a parent ... thereís always room to improve. Read parenting books, attend seminars, and learn from others. Etc.
2. Be a person of your word!
3. Set high expectations for your child and yourself and discuss them with your child.
4. Outline routines, chores, responsibilities, and set limits. Children need and desire boundaries, discipline, and guidance.
5. Let your child know verbally and by example, what your family values are.. it gives them a sense of value and family pride.
