TODAY'S TOPIC: - Parent Involvement from the National PTA
An involved parent is the best thing any child can have.
Your child's well-being -- his or her health, learning, safety, and emotional and behavioral development -- depends on you being an involved parent. But parents come in many types and face very different challenges. Part of the month is focused on how fathers can successfully engage their children in a loving relationship. The second half of the month is designed to provide information to parents whose children may have an autistic spectrum disorder. The Department of Children and Families hopes that this information is helpful as you fully immerse yourself in the challenges and joys of parenting.
