TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL PARENTING:

When parenting, remember these very important words:

  • Touch: Express your love and affection with a warm touch which fosters self esteem, confidence, and value.

  • Time: There is no substitute for quality time with your children. Be sure to include fun time, reading, and other moments of discovery in your schedule.

  • Speech: Speak to your kids from birth. Listen and foster their attempts to speak. The ability to speak is fundamental for success in school and life.

  • Teach: Share your skills with your children. Teach them simple tasks to make them a responsible family member.
