As the upcoming school year approaches, I encourage parents to take a moment to speak with your child’s new teachers to find out their goals for the year. Think of creative ways to help carry lessons from the classroom to the living room, and dedicate a portion of your evening to ask your child what they learned at school that day. You never know, your child could grow up to be one of our nation’s greatest leaders with significant influence on their fellow man. Spend as much time with them as you can – they grow up way too fast.
