Tips for Parents

As a parent or guardian, how you live your own life can have an enormous impact on your children. When parents treat one another – and family, friends and children – with respect and resolve conflicts in positive, non-abusive ways, they send a powerful message to their children to respect others and to expect the same in return. Parents can also help their children learn empathy by finding opportunities to teach them to be accepting of others. They can also teach their children to recognize mistreatment, to understand it is wrong and that there are things a child can do to stop it.
