Tips for inviting open communication with our kids.
MJ Hayes, Kidpower of Colorado’s Visiting Instructor and Center Director Kidpower North Carolina, gives tips to parents to teach kids that it is okay to say set a boundary if someone does something unsafe or breaks our safety rules. She also helps parents have specific language tools to open up lines of communication so that our kids come to us with both the small and big things that may be bothering them.
