Parents Must Be On Board
This should be etched into our own list of “ten commandments”, where it comes to seeking social change as Child-Lovers and Teen-Lovers.
There is no getting around the point, that parents are vital and important…They are allies to be sought after.
In an ideal setting, parents will recognize us as being an advantageous resource to them…an expansion of options, in raising their own children…We help ease burdens, and maybe find it easier to advise and care for the child [or teen] in ways the parent cannot, or does not want to.
We are not an adversary, nor a threat…We are like “an extra right arm”, as an old dear friend analogy goes…
I think, this is a message we should be promoting.
