5 Ways to Reinforce Healthy Boundaries With Your Child
There are 10 tools parents can use that will minimize the risk of your child being sexually abused. One of those tools is setting healthy boundaries for them.
Outlining clear boundaries for your child, including rules, bedtimes, screen time limits, daily routines, etc., allows a child to know what is expected of them. They are then able to predict what will happen in their everyday life, reducing anxiety and allowing them to thrive. Healthy boundaries help protect them and keep them safe. They also allow you to create and continue open communication with your child.
Below is a list of five ways to reinforce the healthy boundaries you’ve set and encourage open communication, whatever the age of your child.
Start a routine.
Have dinner together
give them responsibility.
Keep consequences consistent.
No two children are the same, so keep that in mind as you create the boundaries for your child. They are not a one-size-fits-all situation. You know your child better than anyone and can set appropriate boundaries for him or her as an individual. With the security of healthy boundaries, you’ll be creating an open dialogue with your child, allowing them to thrive within healthy parameters, and minimizing the risk of them being sexually abused.
