We all want to encourage our kids’ independence, but what about when safety is a concern? Focus on “family jobs”: Your job as a parent is to set boundaries, validate your child’s feelings, and empathize. Your child’s job is to explore and express their feelings. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents about how to keep kids safe, especially when they push back on our boundaries. Whether they’re refusing to wear a helmet or hate their carseat, she offers practical strategies and scripts to connect with your child inside and outside of the moment—all grounded in the framework of family jobs.
