This marks the final segment in my series, “Carpe Momento!” – seize everyday moments to talk with children about body safety and sexual abuse prevention. Sensitive or complex subjects like sex, sexual abuse, drugs and other life challenges can leave parents wanting to run for the hills… or even postpone talking about these topics with their kids until “tomorrow”.
Relax, parents… there’s no need to break into a cold sweat! I invite you to try one or more of these simple tips to help get through those sometimes tough life conversations. Special shout-out and THANK YOU to my dear friend Lisa Kochert for offering her back-to-back parenting tip — I love it!
So, what ideas do you have to enhance communication during challenging conversations with your kids? I would love to hear from you and invite you to send me your stories and suggestions at [email protected]. Sharing your experience could make life easier for other parents. :-) Thank YOU!
