How can I help my kid in making the right choices in creating healthy relationships?
- You have to encourage your children to feel good about themselves.
- If a sense om self-esteem gets developed in your child and you give him information about sexuality and relationships, he’ll be better prepared to build his own healthy relationship.
- Children get influenced not only by their parents, but also by things that happen at school with their friends, information on television, magazines and internet. Surveys show that both kids and parents would like to talk more about these issues but they don’t do it because of the lack of time. Because of this you should try to spend more time with your children, in that way you can create a better moment and talk about different topics. It is your chance to correct the possibly false information that your child has heard. For example, you can explain that some people can have different values. You can tell how to protect themselves from sexual harassment. Like – don’t talk to strangers, tell an adult they trust if they don’t feel safe.
