Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey and Phil Archer, state attorney for Brevard and Seminole counties will be guests of Mike Holfeld and “Flashpoint,” as they talk about “It’s Time to Be a Parent Again.”
The program will air at 8 a.m. Sunday on WKMG-Channel 6.
The “It’s Time to Be a Parent Again” program assists parents steer their kids away from trouble and toward success.
Sheriff Ivey discusses the five types of parents he has run across in his career and Archer talks about appropriate discipline in the home.
“Today’s parents and children face challenges like never before and drugs, gangs, bullying and even social media have completely changed our ability to keep watch over our children and give them constant guidance,” said Sheriff Ivey.
“Parenting is the most demanding job in the world. To make matters more challenging, many parents are unsure of what they can legally do to keep their children on the right track. I firmly believe that the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in a child’s life is not the Sheriff or Chief of Police, but rather the mother, father, or grandparent raising the child.
“I am convinced that the answer to lowering America’s crime rate starts in the home, with parents teaching good family values and demanding accountability for poor decisions. That is why the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office started a new course this past year titled “It’s Time To Be A Parent Again.”
