As parents we know that it’s up to us to talk to our kids about the safety rules about touch and boundaries. This can be an intimidating process for parents, but it doesn’t have to be scary. This conversation can be difficult because often parents don’t know what to say. Kidpower founder Irene van der Zande and I are working on providing resources to help guide you through this process.
Here on the Doing Right by Our Kids website, we have just released a free “Talking about Touch and Boundaries” starter kit, with safety rules spelled out clearly, discussion & practice coaching tips for parents, and a free Kidpower coloring book and pages from the Kidpower Safety Comics for you to share directly with your kids.
Just sign up on the www.DoingRightByOurKids.com home page (in the right-hand sidebar) and you’ll receive instant access to our Digital Library of free resources.
Also, coming up on Tuesday April 17th at 1 pm ET, Irene and I will be leading a live Q&A session on “Keeping Our Kids Safe” on TheMotherhood.com
Sign up on TheMotherhood.com to participate in this online discussion with parents, hosted by Amy Tiemann and Irene van der Zande and co-hosted by a panel of parenting experts.
We’ll hope you’ll join us and bring up your top questions about child safety to be answered in the chat.
