Raising Strong and Empathetic Kids: Nurturing Healthy Relationships and Boundaries at Every Age
Please join us Wednesday, May 16, for the annual Child Mind Institute Spring Luncheon.
The ways our children are expected to act in the world and interact with peers are swiftly changing, even as the influences that vie for their attention multiply. How do you explain consent to your 7-year-old? How do we help children learn how to set boundaries with themselves and other people? How do we teach our children what’s right and wrong, when it often seems like all is permitted on the Internet? What does my child need to know now? One thing hasn’t changed: parents are the greatest influence in a child’s life (even during adolescence), and their values are important to kids — even when it doesn’t seem like it. In this panel discussion, child behavior and developmental experts discuss how parents can raise empathetic children who know how to set boundaries with themselves and other people, at every age.
