In her book, Start With the Heart, Kathy Cook shares 4 roles that parents have and must play in a child's life to boost them to success.

The first role is to be their teacher.  This is a role you have whether you want it or not.  They learn from you from the way you talk, act and react.  So we have to be on our toes as teachers everyday for our own children.
