You heard it right here! Good news for parents and everyone who’s intent on making a positive difference in the lives of children and teens…. Raising healthy, happy and responsible kids isn’t primarily about money, the size of the house you live in or how hot a car you drive.
It is about the amount of time you and I spend teaching important values to young people who are or could be within our influence. And while our words are important… it’s our actions that are irreplaceable… it’s about role modelling, teaching by example… it’s about children’s perception of how we live our lives… And so this website will be about sharing stories and examples of how each of us has the capacity to change the lives of children for the better every day… at no cost except for the time it takes. Instead of focusing on,” what’s the matter with our kids?”… we’ll emphasize, “what matters to our kids!”
This blog will therefore be about catching our kids doing something right..the effectiveness of teaching by example, the importance of reasonable boundaries and appropriate consequences. We’ll share 40 practical life building blocks ( Developmental Assets) each of us can introduce/enhance in kids lives every day which can protect them from behaviors that inhibit their potential… at the same time promoting positive family relations, school achievement, and happy responsible living.
