“Parenting is a very important and rewarding role. We as parents and caregivers are our child’s first teachers in life. Our children are our future, and it is our purpose to support them and help them learn that all things are possible. A parent that is active and involved with their child will enable them to believe in themselves and have a voice in this world. They are always watching us and feeding off of the vibes that we put out – lead by example.”
