4-H Members have a better experience when they have parents, older siblings, grandparents, neighbors, or other adults who are able to encourage them throughout their learning experience. 4-H youth and their family are encouraged to attend club meetings and events together. Projects can be worked on around the kitchen table, in the backyard, or at a local community center. Parents can support their child by keeping track of important 4-H dates on the family calendar, keep their child organized, reinforce the importance of following directions, and above all, model the behavior they want their child to exhibit in public settings. It is important to note, the projects themselves are to be the work of the member, not that of a family member or anyone else. Engage as a whole family and learn together.
