How To Help Kids Be Sensible, Safe, and Secure. Six Parenting Skills Help Prevent Alcohol/Drug Use and Violence. Good News for Parents Who Worry about Their Kids. Special Report.
Johnson Inst., Minneapolis, MN.
To help parents learn the six skills that help children avoid drug abuse and voilence, the Johnson Institute has also developed a video-based package titled "Parenting for Prevention: How To Help Kids Be Sensible, Safe, and Secure." This report draws on the Institute's research on violence by and against children and adolescents to present the six parenting skills. These common sense, well-tested skills, are: (1) "how to stop enabling and start empowering kids"; (2) "how to set limits for kids"; (3) "how to enforce consequences when kids violate limits"; (4) "communicating, and how to confront kids when they are doing wrong; how to encourage them when they are doing right"; (5) "how to teach kids to handle anger without violence"; and (6) "how to teach kids to resolve conflicts without violence." The steps to implement each skill are outlined. (SLD)
