Teaching Kids About Boundaries for Emotional and Physical Well-being
Empathy and self-awareness are the building blocks to be able to set healthy boundaries. Help your child understand their own needs and how to be respectful of the needs of others with tips from Inclusion Services, our social and emotional experts on our education team:
Model the Behavior.
Your child will learn by watching you, so share your experiences with them.
Learning to be empathic is key, but so is learning to advocate for themselves.
Respect Their Limits.
Talk about what is, and isn’t, okay with them—and really listen to what they say.
You Do You.
Boundaries look different for everyone. Focus on what's important to you, and your family, not what others think you should do.
