How to Talk to Children about Difficult Topics

 

One of the toughest jobs of being a parent or guardian is talking to your child about difficult issues.  It can seem almost impossible to put into words the really big issues, such as domestic violence, divorce, drugs, and other weighty topics. But in the age of cell phone notifications, live streaming videos, and 24-hour news coverage — when even primary school-aged children are exposed to serious stories daily — it is important to face this challenge head-on. Addressing the tough issues makes your children feel safer, strengthens your bond, and teaches them about the world.
