Intervening in Kid Conflicts
As the parent of a preschooler, I feel responsible for my child’s behavior whenever we are in public. While I am aware that I do teach my child how to treat others (share, take turns, keep hands to herself, etc.), I also know that she can’t really develop into her own person who makes good decisions if I never let her practice. In this Consciously Parenting podcast Rebecca Thompson Hitt and I discuss the importance of letting kids try to work out their differences before an adult jumps in to help. I get to explain why this is important as well as offer up guidelines and tips for doing so.
