     South Carolina recognized almost 300 parents and thirteen affiliates representing seventeen counties held local celebrations for National Parent Leadership Month in February 2008!

   National Parent Leadership Month acknowledges the strengths of parents as leaders and recognizes the extraordinary courage and tenacity of parents  who have reached out to make improvements in their families and communities.

A Parent Leader is: a  role model for other parents, an advocate for children, families and communities;  and a parent, grandparent, foster parent or anyone in a parenting and leadership role. 

      Strong Parent Leaders are more likely to be effective parents, so promoting Parent Leadership is essential to our goal of building and supporting strong, safe families.  

     Our thanks go to our Community Partners, Parent Leaders, and our state-wide network of affiliates for their efforts in making South Carolina a Parents Anonymous® program to emulate when celebrating National Parent Leadership Month.
