Noting that parents and caregivers are vital to the healthy development and growth of children, this pamphlet discusses ways parents and caregivers can help children learn more about themselves and their environment in order to prevent violence. The pamphlet reminds parents to make time to listen to their children and take time to talk with them. Parents are encouraged to: (1) nurture their children; (2) model ways to control anger; (3) develop good communication with their children; (4) respect their children and teach them to respect others; (5) take interest in their child's education and development; (6) keep their child drug-free; and (7) help them develop peaceful solutions to conflict. The pamphlet also suggests ways that parents can prevent their child from becoming a bully or the victim of a bully and discusses reasons why youth join gangs. Finally, the pamphlet delineates rules for spending quality time together. (KB)
