As parents, we all want our children to be safe. But, should we tell them that the world is a dangerous place? It’s a question that many parents grapple with, and the answer is not always clear-cut. Our words are very influential and while we may be meaning well in talking about safety, we could unwittingly instill unnecessary fear.
In this episode, Andrew and Caroline discuss how we can teach kids about safety without making them scared. Instead, we focus on how we can foster a sense of healthy caution while boosting their confidence and independence.
