Male Role Models

Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means it is a great opportunity for families to recognize the importance of fathers or male role models spending quality time with their children. Certainly, there is considerable evidence available to show that the more a father or male role model is involved in his children’s life, the more successful they will be.  However, it is key to remember that the quality of time, not the quantity of time that will yield those desired positive results. Ms. Kelli discussed this topic on The Rhode Show.

The Importance of Volunteering

How can we begin to teach our children how important it is to volunteer in their community?  Certainly we can initiate this process by starting early and as their primary adult role models, begin by setting a good example for our children.  If your family is involved in volunteering in the community, then it will become second nature to your children.  You know that old saying, “lead by example”, well that is very true when it comes to young children.  If they see that you put a lot of value on assisting others then they will too.
