What You Can Do
What You Can Do
Consider becoming a foster parent
for a child, or children from the same family. Contact Fostering Washington (below).
How children can help strengthen their family:
Love, honor and obey your parents
by asking for, listening to, and considering their counsel. If you do not have a mother or father, do your part to support the parent you do have.
Honor and respect both your parents and grandparents.
If you talked to your friends like you talk to your parents, would you have any friends?
Be a real friend to your brothers and sisters
, and treat everyone with kindness.
Help keep your family strong and close.
Love your family and be loyal to them. Your most important friendships should be with your own brothers, sisters and parents.
Ask your parents to teach you the things they know
—skills, talents, social skills, a foreign language they speak, academic knowledge, financial knowledge, and other talents and wisdom they possess.
Make a list
of all the things your mother has done for you. Send it to her.
Identify a motherly figure in your life
and take her flowers, or send her a card.
Keep a journal to record your life story
using experiences and lessons learned.
Do your best to make good choices.
—do not lie, steal, shoplift or cheat. Have the courage to do what you know is right.
Read every day,
but avoid filthy books, magazines, music, movies and television.
Be a good citizen.
Be patriotic, and love your country.
and treat everyone with kindness.
Be kind to your parents and family
—treat them the way you want to be treated.
Is there a family member
you haven’t talked to lately? Visit with them, or call them.
Look for opportunities to serve and help others
in your family, neighborhood, school, community, and Church.
Consider becoming a member of a youth group
, such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4-H, YMCA, a Church youth group, etc.
