Boundaries and Expectations

Neighborhood Boundaries | Neighbors take responsibility for monitoring young people’s behavior.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Tell other parents when you see their children being responsible or generous in their actions.  Try to find opportunities to praise more often than you report misbehavior.
  • Make your home one that kids want to come to.  If kids get rowdy in your home, be calm but firm in reestablishing order.
  • Meet the parents of your children’s friends.  If your preteen wants to go with friends tgo a movie or the mall without you, call other parents and agree on pick-up times and movie choices.
