Tip – Asset #13—Neighbor Boundaries: Neighbors take responsibility for monitoring young people's behavior
Neighbors who share your values can play a large role in helping your children thrive when they know your children, you, and your behavior expectations. Start by your family organizing a neighborhood pot luck, yard sale, or clean-up activity. Assets 3,4,10,14 & 26 (Other Trusting Adults, Caring Neighborhood, Safety, and Role Models, Caring for others) can be strengthened by neighbor involvement as well.
