CDC Features - Engaged Parents Have Healthier Adolescents | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Students whose parents are engaged in their school lives are more likely to practice healthy behaviors and succeed academically.
Sharrock's insight:

Some of the most important qualities that help kids succeed and excel are called resilience factors.
