Every parent we have ever met wants to have a smart child and be a smart parent. Raising a child is the most important responsibility anyone will ever have and can provide the most pleasure and reward.
SMART PARENT/SMART CHILD is the revolutionary philosophy that all children are incredibly intelligent from the moment they are born. When parents have learned understanding, respect, highly developed communication and relationship skills and development related expertise, it is amazing what a child can accomplish and, in fact, each child will achieve his maximum potential.

“We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike” –Maya Angelou
However this year when everyone is usually celebrating we are seeing a major shift in our country where we are being challenged by a life altering threat to our children.
We are hearing from the parents who are directly involved in the school system, that following the results of the recent election, most classes came to a standstill so children could share their experiences and circumstances.
They were emotionally distraught and seeking some reassurance and support that the threats they were hearing would never happen.
Thousands of our children are now living in fear that they will be separated from their families, possibly taken from the only country they have ever known and have all hope of a better future taken from them.
Each of these “at risk” children are “our” children. We have forever been united in our country’s desire and commitment for a better life for all of our children.
This is one of the critical areas where we are alike and we have to take all the steps necessary to ensure that they children are never denied a right they deserve.
As parents, we need to take an active role to support these children in every way possible and to get this message to everyone who may be instrumental in a positive solution.
Whatever happens to each of these children happens to all of us.
This must be the challenge where we are more alike in our desire to achieve positive results!
