Designed for parents and grandparents, this booklet discusses different types of parenting challenges and strategies for successful parenting. It begins by explaining RPM3, a parenting approach from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. RPM3 stands for: Responding to your child in an appropriate manner, Preventing risky behavior or problems before they arise, Monitoring your child's contact with his or her surrounding world, Mentoring your child to support and encourage desired behaviors, and Modeling your own behavior to provide a consistent, positive example for your child. The booklet explains each of RPM3 components and provides examples of implementing each strategy. The following section applies RPM3 to different age groups, providing case studies to illustrate how to use RPM3 with children ages 0-3, 4-10, and 11-14. 14 references.
