How to help your child learn

Responsible Decision-Making

You can teach your children responsible decision-making by modeling it, or practicing it yourself​.

Responsible decision-making has to do with making choices that fit your values​.

Share your thought process: “Before we decide which one to pick, let’s learn a little more about each of them.”​

Name how your values influence your choices: “It’s important to me that you get a chance to try different foods. That’s why that food is part of our dinner today.”​

Make it your own!​

Modeling social emotional skills is one way of teaching your child your family’s culture, values, and belief system. ​
