Parenting Tips

Salem Mom and Daughter

Access hundreds of research-based, field-tested parenting tips.

  • Teach children caution, not fear. Teach them to trust and obey their feelings if someone ever makes them uncomfortable and to ask for help whenever they need it.
  • More important than the words we say is the attitude we convey. When children know they have our attention, that what they feel and say is important to us, they feel supported.
