Facilitate a Conversation
With Your Child.
Help them understand rules in the context of our personal beliefs and expectations.

Having the confidence to say “no” is a skill that takes time to develop. As parents, we can encourage this skill by practicing in low-risk situations.
Stricter rules and penalties push kids away. Instead of cracking down, parents can encourage their children’s decision-making skills by pointing out their positive qualities and reminding them of our support.
