Most definitely. Parents who teach, guide, discipline, communicate and show love can set their children up for productive, fulfilled, successful and happy lives. Parents who read for themselves and read to their children lead by good example as do those who are involved with their children's education and school.
Parents who avoid using electronic devices to babysit their children are creating a solid foundation for success as are parents who do not shy away from disciplining their children and teaching them right from wrong, what is acceptable and what is not. I also believe that parents who are financially and mentally prepared to have children that they have planned to have can lead their children to the same positive choices when they are grown.
