Here’s what happy parents do to raise happy kids! Sign up to find out!
The times are gone when we sought the approval of our parents when it came to making friends. But we really didn’t have to as our friendships bloomed in the neighbourhood or school itself. Cut to today’s digital and completely online world, leave us parents, sometimes even our kids don’t know who they are chatting with or befriending.
The online world sure has its benefits. Kids get to experience and learn so many different cultures or perspectives through their online friends, but they don’t nearly top the dangers this has. So, this brings up the question…
Should We Decide Who Are Kids Hang Out With?
I know what’s going on in your head- “that’s impossible”… To some extent it is. But it is also not right on our part to do so. But, if we know our kids are hanging out with someone who is trouble, do we still remain quiet? No.
So, do we tell them to stop being with them? You can’t, to them, their friends are perfect. So, how do we let them know and guide them without being too nosy in their lives?
Maybe, rather than thinking about ways to get them with the right company. We should focus on building our own relationships with our pre-teens and teens. Once, we have a strong and open bond, it gets easier to communicate your views to them.
