      I remember teaching my kids “The Golden Rule” - treat others the way you wish to be treated. I think it’s simple and relatable. Also, “what you give out, comes back to you.” I also strongly agree with open ended questions to prompt introspection and mindfulness. And lastly, it’s up to me, or any parent, to model the behavior they wish to instill in their children, it’s really the best teacher.

      "It’s about perspective. Your child doesn’t have the capacity to understand how they come across."

      "Perspective into our own behavior and choices allows us to recognize social cues. Their intentions are good, but they don’t really know how to tune in and "walk in the other person’s shoes.""

      "Your child has no reason or desire to be "bad" or uncaring. Their intentions are good, but they can struggle with interpreting social cues.""

      "It’s a journey, and consistency is the key. Parents should find comfort in knowing that all children benefit from patient and nurturing parents."

      "Open-ended questions are well suited to parents who wish to help their children turn social struggles into positive outcomes." (Who, What, When, Where, Why, How)
