    Families are the primary educators of children because they tend to be around the kids the most. They are there during the hardest times in the child’s life. The children’s knowledge mainly comes from what their parents tell them.

    Support the families by acknowledging the family values and expectations. Remember that the parents are the ‘experts’ about their child.

    Supporting the families is important because it means supporting the child in your care. The child is a product of it’s environment in the early stage of life and the parents are just as important in the process as care givers.
