Be a friend to the younger generation

-A A +A
By The Staff

This week we take a look at Asset #15, Positive Peer lnfluence. According to the Search-Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when their best friends model responsible behavior.”

While you can’t choose your child’s friends, you can have a big impact on their friendships. From the time our kids were tiny, my friend Karen and I knew we wanted to have the “hangout house.”

You know the house you see on the Tyson food commercials when the kids come home from school with friends and want to eat you out of house and home.

We knew that even as they were growing that one day we’d be making potatoes with every meal just to fill them up. There would be some purchases we’d need to make in bulk and we’d be okay with that.

That fact that your children’s friends feel welcome in your home is a must.

The museum quality vision may be out the window for some time, while teens begin to emerge. There’s always a ball being tossed, dancing taking place or impromptu wrestling being performed.

As your children move on from the elementary level to middle and high school friends begin to acquire a variety of dressing habits, hairstyles and other accessories.
