Creating Empowered Kids

Making Parents the One Percent

February 26th, 2020

Parents care more about their children at school than we realize

Often we hear about the demise of the family and our lack of focus on our children. It’s ironic that we are facing many difficult issues at our elementary schools, and yet, there is hope that we have the right priorities. Parents care, teachers care, and school administrators care. Let’s take a look at some interesting findings from Pew Research, what are parents greatest aspirations for their children?

  1. Honest & ethical
  2. Caring & compassionate
  3. Hard-working
  4. Financial independence
  5. Ambitious

And, most parents want to contribute time and resources at their children’s schools. The problem is the battle for time for the moms and dads. Interestingly as parents, we first care about our children’s welfare, and then our hierarchy of concern and desire to impact positively, especially with respect to being good parents, are the following:

  • Spouses
  • Our parents
  • Our children’s friends parents
  • Our close friends

Yes, we have many problems that we are facing pertaining to education, BUT we have our priorities right, and we seem to care about others as we work to develop the next great generation.
