)-- Make a Family New Year’s Resolution: Set your children up for success
What is your new year’s resolution? Will you decide to lose weight? Organize your closets? How about making a resolution that really counts. Why not make your new year’s resolution family focused?
Set your children up for success.
How many children are actually prepared for college? The statistics are grim. Now with the cutbacks in educational funding, who can parents rely on to help their children on the path to higher education? That’s why parents must be empowered to be sure their children have the option to go to a four year college or university. That process starts at home.
Empowering Parents is traveling the country teaching parents how to be “Mean Ole Mamas (and Daddys) to put families back together and set children up for success.
Here are some new year’s resolutions that parents can make and keep.
1. Get your child’s transcript: Are your children taking the correct courses so they are on track for college?
a. Are they getting good grades in those courses?
b. Do they need help or special attention?
2. Decide and agree on success as a focus for the entire family
3. Set an example: Children learn from their parents.
a. If you are on the phone and texting at the dinner table your children will follow your example.
b. If you are gossiping and saying negative things, your children learn from your example.
c. If you are satisfied with “good enough” in your job, your children will learn to only do things so they are “good enough.”
