Parents play an important role in helping their children to be successful at school. Many parents have found that when they have the same behavior expectations and use the same language as school, it is easier for children to make good choices at home. Also, when parents practice Positive Behavior Expectations related to Pirate PRIDE at home, they support what their child is learning at school and create better behaviors outside of school.
