Parenting with a Purpose Part I

As Parents it is very important that we have a purpose when parenting. According to Kansas City Chiefs head football coach, Herm Edwards, “a goal without a plan is a wish”. Parenting with a purpose means that parents have to develop a specific plan to accomplish the goals they have for their children. Most parents desire that their children develop sound attitudes, behaviors, values and a positive outlook on the environment around them. However, if a parent has been absent from their children’s life, it could be very difficult to accomplish that goal. In short, parenting with a purpose requires an understanding of the influences and individuals who occupy their children’s time. Therefore, developing effective communication is important.
