“How can I protect my kids?”

Instilling a sense of ownership in our children with regard to their physical bodies may be the best answer to one of the most common of all parental questions, “How can I protect my kids?”

This is an area where “learning by trial and error and by personal experience” is the worst of all possible methods. We must try to tie ownership of the body directly to ownership of values, choices and goals and to find “vicarious” methods of examples, case studies and talking things through in advance that will give children the strong desire to care for and protect their own bodies.
