In This Episode with Michelle Kelley
Affirmation – I am calm and centered no matter what is happening around me.
Key discussion points in the interview include:
- Be in touch with what your kids are doing – whether or not it involves technology. The earlier the better so that you can intervene if there is a problem. Waiting to monitor a child’s phone at age 16 is more difficult than if you start when they first get it.
- If you should find out that your child is the bully, help your child develop an awareness that what they are doing is possibly hurtful to other people.
- Live by example. We as parents need to “own it” when we say something we are not proud of.
