Practical Principle: High Expectations

Both parent(s) and teachers encourage the young person to do well.

Guiding Growths

  • To this day, parents remain the number one reason why youth choose a drug-free lifestyle. When a parent holds their child(ren) to a high standard the child(ren) will rise to meet that expectation.
  • With children, youth, and young adults all learning from home for the remainder of the school year, teachers can sustain their high expectations even though students are virtually reporting to class.
