Parents as Asset Builders

The 40 Developmental Assets have been proven to be key indicators of young peoples' success. Some of the indicators of success are lower rates of truancy, more tolerance to others and avoidance of the use of alcohol and drugs. The more developmental assets a young person has, the more likely they are to become a contributing member of their community and more likely to achieve their personal goals. So as a parent, what can I do to be an asset builder for my child?
