BONDING WITH TEENAGERS⁠-Safety Starts Here

The best way to know what's going on in your teen's life? Meet their friends! Invite them over and engage them in conversation. Be honest with your teen and communicate with them! Find a hobby together where you can have one-on-one time to bond with your teen, and disconnect from devices. Most importantly, just listen to them. Like all people, teens sometimes just need a listening ear and someone they can count on to hear them and love them unconditionally. ⁠

We hope you have enjoyed our series on "Safety Starts Here"! Safety starts with bonding, healthy attachments, and relationships with safe adults - safety starts with YOU.

BONDING WITH SCHOOL AGE KIDS- Safety Starts Here

Set a date with each child! Quality time spent "playing" however they want - board games, pretend play, etc. - is so important. Read with your child to bond and improve skills. Put down your own device and really communicate with your child, teaching them to have meaningful conversations while learning about them at the same time!

Having a hard time communicating? Try playing "highs and lows" at dinner time! Each person takes a turn naming the highs and lows of their day.

BONDING WITH TODDLERS - Safety Starts Here

Toddlers are learning through play, so play, play, PLAY with them! Spend as much quality time together reading books, singing songs, and playing games. Communicate with your toddler constantly as they learn to communicate with the world around them!
