Parents: Be Role Models for Your Children

Here is what we can all do to help keep our children "violence-free"

Parents and caregivers are vital to the healthy development and growth of children. We all know this, but what can we do better to enrich our children? Helping children learn more about themselves and their environment can be a key step in preventing school andyouth violence. Parents want children to be safe, and children want to feel and be safe.

The following information will be both helpful to you as a parent and caregiver, as well as to your children. So take time to read and make time to share this with your children. Violence prevention begins with YOU. Remember to make time to listen, take time to talk...these can be precious moments.


Show love and concern

Every day, tell your child you love him/her.
Show affection daily with a hug, a kiss, and/or a touch.
Make time for special family fun activities.
Meet your child's friends to ensure he/she has positive influences.


Understand - don't take a stand

Children who don't know how to control their anger are more likely to fight. Teach children how to calm down and talk over their problems. Tips for keeping cool and solving a problem:

  • Keep in mind that anger is real, but it usually goes away.
  • To calm down, think about or do things you enjoy.
  • Once you have calmed down, think about the problem with a clear head.
  • Take steps to solve the problem.

Communication Is a two-way street

Children who have good communication with their parents are more likely to ask for their advice than turn to peers. When talking to your child, always remember to:

  • Listen to your child.
  • Find out what your child knows about violence and how to prevent it before you start talking.
  • Let your child know he/she can always talk to you about anything.
