What do Miami, Philadelphia and Boston have in com­mon?  All offer par­ents of new­born and school age chil­dren class­es and work­shops on par­ent­ing skills.  Because par­ents are the most impor­tant teacher in a student’s life, they must be engaged in their children’s edu­ca­tion.  Classes that teach every­thing from math lit­er­a­cy to eti­quette are free to par­ents wish­ing to par­tic­i­pate.  Parent pro­grams that are the most suc­cess­ful tar­get fam­i­lies in need and rein­force lessons over a peri­od of time.  Time mag­a­zine shares infor­ma­tion about Miami’s Parent Academy in its arti­cle dat­ed November 8, 2009.
