Encouraging Developmental Relationships with Kids

(From ParentFurther

This month, our conversation centers on the importance of developmental relationships. Healthy developmental relationships happen when youth and adults actively listen to each other; treat each other with respect, honesty, kindness, and empathy; have a shared understanding of their roles and responsibilities within the relationship; respectfully challenge and hold each other accountable; and enjoy their time together.

Over the next few days, PATH NC will post tips from ParentFurther that may be used to encourage caring relationships in your child’s life.
