Asset 1 - Family Support

Family Support - Family life provides high levels of love and support.

It comes as no surprise that children and youth who report that their family life provides a high level of love and support are most likely to become caring, responsible and productive adults.

Essential Question: What can you do personally, or what programs can you support that help our families provide love and support?

Tip of the Day: “Think about when not to say anything. Well-timed silence in the form of listening---rather than lecturing or changing the topic can help your children turn problems into learning experiences on their own.” (Your Family, Using Simple Wisdom in Raising Your Children. Search Institute)
