Protecting Your Children

     Unfortunately, there is no way to be with our children 24 hours a day in order to protect them. Since we can’t protect them 100% of the time, the next best thing we can do is ready them to appropriately face challenges as they arise. Doing this helps them increase their awareness about the potential dangers that abound. 

     But how do you do that in a way that doesn’t make them anxious or afraid? You can begin by modeling behavior in your own daily life – staying calm, grateful, and informed each and every day, without letting that information unduly impact your activities.
