10 Commandments for Parents from Students

I’m always interested in

what thoughts students have when it comes to what they need from parents. These are the top 10 “commandments” students in Mary Simmons’ English classes came up with for parents, based on her compilation of thousands of responses over five years. Mary Simmons teaches at Bothell High School in the state of Washington.

1. Discipline me right.

2. Provide for me well.

3. Allow me freedom.

4. Be a role model.

5. Be there.

6. Respect my individuality.

7. Respect my privacy.

8. Love me.

9. Don’t embarrass me.

10. Have reasonable expectations.

Super simple. What do you think?
