Parent Toolkit

According to decades-long research, nothing is as important to a child’s success as consistent encouragement and positive expectations at home. ESI recognizes that parents, caregivers and other family members are powerful influences on a child’s attitude about the value of education. The videos below provide parents and caregivers with the tools and strategies to help their child stay motivated in school, overcome obstacles, build resilience, avoid high-risk behavior, prepare for college and career, and many other critical youth issues. Use the videos’ Family Viewing Guides to start a conversation with your kids about their dreams and goals, and the importance of high school, college and career readiness in determining their future success.
