Working Assumptions about Parents

Until proven otherwise, we believe all parents want to:

* be proud of their child.

* have a positive influence on their child.

* hear good news about their child and what their child is good at.

* give their child a good education and a good chance of success in life (however they define it).

* see their childís future as better than theirs.

* have a good relationship with their child.

* be hopeful about their child.

* feel that they are good parents.
