Active Parenting

I believe in the importance of being an involved parent. Can you name your child's friends? Or their teachers? Do you know what subject in school they enjoy the most? Or what subject they struggle in? What do they want to be when they grow up? These answers will most likely change through out the years and even though you may not see them as important now we must remember that children don't often see much farther then a week from today so it may be very important to them. Some things children view as important can in fact be very trivial and ridiculous but they will remember if you didn't cherish their stuffed tiger as much as you did.  Active parenting describes the role of a parent who is engaged with his child's development. Although this role might seem commonsensical, this term is applied to parents who want to participate in their children's lives and know what is happening with their children on a day to day basis. Being an active parent gives you the opportunity to grow closer to your children and you will be more likely to influence them in a positive manner if you show them that you love them unconditionally and care more about their well being then anything else.
