I am honored and privileged to be a part of the mission of Education for Successful Parenting. At a time when young people are bombarded with images and themes that glamorize sex alongside other plot lines that make parenting look easy, fun, and exciting, the mission of ESP is to bring a dose of reality to those teens and give them straight information on what it takes to actually parent. The program covers a wide array of topics, from realizing and budgeting for the cost of a child to understanding the stress that comes with parenting. The program begins with helping the students visualize and set their goals for their future families, recognizing that no one sets goals to raise children in poverty. It then shows them step by step how the choices and decisions that they make now and in the near future will impact those goals that they have set. Equipping young people with information and education on what it actually takes to achieve their goals for establishing a family is what ESP is all about. It has helped to change so many lives, and will continue to have a positive effect in the mission to break the cycle of young parents raising the next generation in less than desirable circumstances.
