1. Be a student at being a parent ... there’s 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.
6. Be generally inquisitive about your child both in school and at home.
7. Create a positive partnership with your child’s teachers.
8. Get involved in the school programs.
9. Support your child’s interest. Attend their games, programs, etc.
10. Speak to your child with respect and demand the same from your child.
11. Let your child know that you are proud of them, you love them, you believe in them, you support them, and give them hugs.
12. DON’T tell them what they can’t accomplish. And, don’t allow anyone else kill or block your child’s dreams.
13. Have access to your child’s E-mail account, Myspace, or Facebook accounts.
14. Do not allow them to go into chat rooms on the computer.
15. Limit their phone calls during the school week.
17. Put aside time to spend with just your child. Schedule that time in your calendar if necessary.
18. Teach them and demonstrate self respect and respect for others.
19. Ground them in your faith.

For high school students, make sure they take the ACT PLUS exam.
