Aim: New People (Part One- Meeting New Kids)
Our Target: Our goal is to help our kids see the difference between the real danger of strangers and kids that they simply have not talked to yet. Let’s help our kids understand the safe places they should talk to adults and how that is different from talking to classmates for the first time could mean making a new friend.
Team Up! Try these simple ideas to help your child want to talk.
JUST ASK your child what they normally do at recess. If they talk about playing with a couple of the same kids all the time, ask about what all of the other kids are doing on the playground and if any of those things sound fun to your child. Let your child know that, even if they have a best friend, getting to know new people is a great thing. We grow as people when we learn with others about new things and new ideas.
