Protecting children’s personal safety in the real world often requires their being able to persist in situations that are uncomfortable where they don’t feel safe. For example, setting a boundary is likely to provoke a negative reaction at first. Knowing how to persist with a positive response to that negative reaction can make a big difference in whether or not the boundary will be respected. In addition, we want children to ask for help when they need it – but persisting in getting help when no one seems to be listening can be very hard work. In order for children to trust in their personal power, they need to know how to keep going even when they feel upset, discouraged, unhappy, embarrassed, or tired.Please Sign-up for our free community membership to access to this content and 100s more Kidpower resources.
