Parenting is one of the most influential and powerful leadership roles. This book explores how parentsa decisions affect themselves, their children, and the family as a whole. Strategic Leadership Consultants and I conducted studies within the Washington metropolitan area in order to illustrate to readers how children are less negatively affected in a harmonious, intact family. Also, we provide suggestions on how to promote a positive family structure by means of leadership training for parents, thus reducing the numbers of youths in special education classes, foster care, and risky practices like experimentation with drugs, joining gangs, gun violence, suicide, early parenthood, and mental health issues. Although, my primary target audience is parents, it is my sincere hope that others may benefit from the information provided. This book further explores how wildcard scenarios such as abuse, depression, and divorce can impact the mental and emotional stability of children. Expert advice from psychiatrist Stanley Turecki and psychologist Cynthia Buckson along with other professionals is shared. Candid stories throughout this book support my theory that parentsa choices can affect their children, in many cases, causing long-term mental challenges. These stories further underscore the great impact parents have on their children, both positive and negative. Additionally, I provided a list of suggested topics that parents may discuss with children at different developmental stages, as well as a resource section for parents and children in crisis, or in need of information. Also, I shared a contribution to our newly elected President qBarack Obamaq and how he demonstrated exemplary leadership and parental skills. Hence, The purpose of this book is to inform and motivate parents to apply the leadership strategies suggested. The strategies and case studies presented may inspire parents to develop into stronger leaders for their children.Boulevard Detroit, MI 48208 Phone: (313) 463-2000 Fax: (313) 463-2001 Emergency Shelter Services, Inc. 645 ...
