In many ways, parents today prefer to avoid the topic of violence, and pretend it isn’t occurring all around their children
- News, music, movies
- Social media influencers, live leaks
- School, sports and peer groups
Ignoring how your kids process violence is simply not reality. As fathers, we must face the reality that our children face violence regularly, at different levels. How they handle each encounter, is up to us. Period.
Even though they are less likely to encounter someone physically attacking them with a weapon, more subtle forms of violence will absolutely occur throughout our lives.
It is your job to teach your kid a healthy attitude towards violence.
- How to recognize escalation
- How to avoid it conflict
- How to interrupt threats, minimize injury and defend themselves and others.
