Parenting Tips:

Positive Family Communication
is Important:
Parents who communicate positively
create an environment that encourages
the development of emotionally secure
children and a stable family.

Action Plan for Positive
Parent-Child Communication:

1.) Choose words that your child
can understand.
2.) Be a good listener.
3.) Be direct, honest, and open.
4.) Be sensitive to the emotional impact
of the messages you send your child.
Think before you speak.
5.) Make time each day to have a
conversation about anything
you or your child like to discuss.
6.) Use questions in conversations with
your child to show your interest and
to generate an open response.
CASA volunteers offer children trust and advocacy during complex legal
proceedings. The CASA volunteer explains what is happening and encourages
the child to express his or her own opinions and hopes.
The CASA volunteer acts as an
objective observer and serves as the
eyes and ears of the court. Each time
the child's case comes to court the
volunteer writes a report and makes
recommendations to the Judge. The
purpose of the CASA program is to
support effective volunteer advocacy
for the best interests of abused and
neglected children caught up in our
court system. Our goal is that every
child has a safe, supportive and
permanent home.
