Parents matter! 

When parenting is at its best, children thrive. Parents who understand child development are more likely to provide respectful communication, consistent and appropriate expectations, and responsive nurturing interactions. Researchers have determined that effective early parenting contributes to children’s development of cognitive and social skills, positive parent-child and peer relationships, and prevention of delinquency, risky behaviors, and school failure.
