Parent's 4-H Pledge

 
(From University of Illinois Extension)
 
I pledge my HEAD to give
my child the information I
can, to help him/her see
things clearly, and to make
wise decisions.
 
I pledge my HEART to encourage
and support my child no
matter whether he/she has
successes or disappointments.
 
I pledge my HANDS to
help my child’s club; if I
cannot be a club leader, I
can help in many equally
important ways.
 
I pledge my HEALTH to
keep my child strong and
well for a better world through
4-H for my child’s club, our
community, our country,
and our world
