""The most significant relationship a youngster will have is with their parents. The way that relationship develops over time has the potential to be either a threat or a benefit to society." " 

What a Parent Had To Say...


"No regrets. I learned a whole lot more than I thought I would.  Patience... I realized I was taking my role as a parent much too lightly.  I was raising a child who needed skills to function as a successful adult.  I have a child to 'launch into adulthood successfully.'  I now know what that requires of me as a single mom and a PARENT!"
