"It takes a village to raise a child." ~ Nigerian Igbo culture saying
Why is Family Important? Numerous studies have shown how strong immediate family creates an environment that facilitates child student achievement and reduces likelihood of drug dependency and incarceration. In today’s environment of declining marriage rates and increasing divorce, it is more important than ever that a strong extended family be established and nourished to ensure the well-being of our children today, the adults of tomorrow.
