Is a mentor supposed to act as another parent for my child?

A mentor’s main role is to develop a positive relationship with your child by meeting on a regular basis. Mentors are not intended to act as another parent but as an additional caring and responsible adult supporting the healthy development of your child. Perhaps you recall a teacher, coach, or another person who helped you in some way while you were growing up - that adult was being a mentor. Within a formal program there are people of various backgrounds and a wide range of skills and interests who are carefully screened, selected and trained to mentor a child.
