Quality starts at home,

When parents teach their children lessons about the consequences of their behavior then quality teachers will be able to teach these children.

Quality students isn't the results of expensive schools, funded teachers unions, over-paid and underperforming school administrators, school boards, teachers and expensive sports programs.

When businesses aren't able to find adequate employees that are punctual, dependable, drug-free, reliable, trustworthiness with a genuine work ethic that has the ability to communicate, read, write and do simple math problems then someone has failed to provide the basics required for survival. Add in proper dress code, personal appearance and the picture gets far more complicated.

If you have a conversation with businesses owners in your community they may be willing to share their hiring frustration with you.

I don't say this to be mean spirited, I say it because it's the message I hear from businesses I work with across the country.

It's time for parents to get back to being parents and to quit being your child's best friend, our nation's future depends on it.

It would be a good first step for parents and their children to have dinner with each other. Though I'm not LDS, I will tell you that many years ago my wife and I adopted a LDS program that our children have told us that made a difference to them and it's called "Family Home Evening" as I remember it.
