____ Review A Checklist for Your Life and complete, and/or help your child with, applicable items

Always:
____ Try to talk to your child on the same level, physically (e.g., get on your knees) and intellectually (e.g., person to person)
____ Set a good example for your child
____ Be consistent
____ Give your child some independence as long as it doesn't endanger him/her
____ Provide structure and guidelines for your child
____ Don't yell at your child, unless it's a dangerous situation
____ Don't make threats you might not carry out
____ Don't criticize your child's friends unless necessary
____ Make your child feel comfortable when he/she asks you questions - so he/she will ask you when they have questions rather than ask someone else or acting without asking anyone for advice
____ Take advantage of things you and child see at the same time (e.g., on TV) to ask your child:
          - If they have questions about that subject
          - What they think about that subject
____ Be honest with your child (if you're uncomfortable telling him/her the truth, tell him/her that he/she doesn't need to know or that you'll tell him/her later) - so they will always know they can trust you

If your child does any of the following:
          - Threatens to bodily harm you or your friends
          - Destroys property
          - Repeatedly exceeds the behavior limits you set for him/her
____ Talk to your family doctor
____ Consider seeking psychiatric counseling for your child

If your child says that his/her friends are doing something that you're not letting him/her do (e.g., "everyone else does it"):
____ Tell your child that you will call the parents of those children

As often as feasible:
____ Try to take your child to things he/she can do rather than things he/she would just observe - to stimulate mental and physical growth
____ Give your child lots of love and support - to stimulate mental and physical growth
____ Keep your child busy with interesting and beneficial activities - so he/she won't be tempted by undesirable activities (e.g., trying illegal drugs, vandalism) due to boredom
____ Take action to slow traffic on the streets by your home - see keepkidsalive.com

AUTHORITY:
Before exercising authority over your child:

____ Ensure you are aware of, and understand, what your child is going through, e.g.:
          - Go to the places they go to
          - Listen to the music they listen to
          - Watch the movies they see
          - Volunteer to help in his/her classroom

COMPUTERS:
If your child has access to the Internet/ World Wide Web:

____ Be aware that many child abusers/molesters use the Internet to gain a child's trust and set up a one-on-one meeting
____ Warn your child:
          - About child molesters using the Internet
          - To not give out any personal information on the Internet, e.g.,
              - Where you live
              - Where you go to school
          - To never meet with someone who has contacted them on the Internet without your approval
____ Monitor your child's use of the Internet, including where they spend their time (e.g., specific chat rooms)
____ Consider not letting your child:
          - Send E-mails
          - Use the computer unsupervised

Mother of a girl:
____ Don't unintentionally make your daughter think that food is bad - many mothers unintentionally make their daughters feel that dieting is important, risking anorexia
____ Ensure your daughter understands that the women portrayed in commercials, on magazine covers, etc. are just images and are often airbrushed and/or computer enhanced - to help keep your daughter from feeling she needs to lose weight, risking anorexia

Teach your child:
____ To find pleasure in the right things

VISITING FRIENDS:
Before letting your child visit a friend's house:

____ Ask the parents if have guns in the house
____ Tell your child that if they're in a friend's house and they see a gun, they must leave or call you right away
