    I want my child to achieve.  Therefore I will encourage him/her by doing the following:

     Sign my child’s papers or folders
     Participate in decisions related to my child’s education  (Ex.  Homework, parent-teacher conferences, school events, etc.)
     Share in responsibility for improved student academic achievements
     Use before and after school time positively (Ex. Read with my child and let my child see me read, monitor my child’s television and technical related media such as video games, and computer)
