This guide presents RPM3, a no-frills approach to parenting. The acronym RPM3 stands for Responding to your child in an appropriate manner, Preventing risky behavior problems, Monitoring your child's contact with his or her surrounding world, Mentoring your child to support and encourage desired behaviors, and Modeling your own behavior to provide a consistent, positive example for your child. The RPM3 approach offers research-based guidelines for being an effective, consistent, active, and attentive parent. Following an introduction, the first part of the guide details each element of the approach. The second part of the guide then illustrates each of these steps in action for parenting children at 3 age levels: 0-3 years, 4-10 years, and 11-14 years. The sections for these age groups each include a scenario in which the parent exhibits the appropriate behavior, and questions to consider while reading the scenario. (Contains 14 references.) (HTH)
