It's Time to Be A Parent Again!

First and foremost, I strongly believe that the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in a child's life is not the Sheriff or Chief of Police, but instead is the Mom, Dad, Grandparent, or Foster Parent that is raising the child. As a young man growing up in North Florida, I never worried about being in trouble with law enforcement, as I was more worried about being in trouble with my parents. Granted, today's parents and children face challenges like never before. Drugs, gangs, bullying and even social media have completely changed our ability to keep watch and hold them accountable for their actions. Today's parenting is 24 hours a day and one of the most demanding jobs in the world, but it is also one of the most rewarding opportunities that life has to offer.

Chief Law Enforcement Officer

You as the parent need to be the “Chief Law” Enforcement Officer in your child's life. Take control and hold them accountable for his or her actions.

Your Rights

As a parent, you have a responsibility and a right to hold your child accountable. Dont make excuses for both you and your child. Remember you're raising the next generation of parents.

Tough Love

It’s hard to tough love your kids, it's harder to visit them in jail, but it's unimaginable to visit them in the cemetery. Start taking the initiative, begin to make the changes before it's too late.
