How to share about today’s show

As always, thank you for sharing about We Turned Out Okay!

Today’s is the kind of show where somebody might get upset when you say “oh – YOU will get so much benefit,” because nobody wants to think that they wouldn’t keep their kids safe.

So if you know someone who is notorious for letting their kids run around unattended, or for yelling all the time, here’s how to share it:

Post it on a public page, like your Facebook page, and say something like “I got such benefit from this episode of We Turned Out Okay,” instead of singling somebody else out.

And thank you so much for sharing! That is how our show has grown and grown : )

The 3 Ways to Keep Your Child Safe

1) Lower your voice

… That way, if you must raise it (like if somebody is running out into the street or away from you at the store), they HEAR it.

Keeping your most urgent-sounding, loudest voice for just those moments when it’s really necessary keeps your child safe, and also maintains the sanity levels in your home.

2) Commit to eating at least one meal per day together, as a family

… It is crazy amazing how this one solves all kinds of problems.

Families who eat a meal together every day (or most days anyway) have engaged kids who feel supported by their parents – and who, in turn, trust their parents in a way that doesn’t happen in families who never sit down and break bread together.

We will get to the third one just below. But first:

3) Stay with them in public places

I’m thinking of restaurants, doctor’s offices, hospitals, supermarkets…

In the days before recording this episode I heard from several people in both the restaurant and healthcare sectors, begging me – literally begging! – that I would share their fears that somebody is going to get hurt when parents let their kids run around the restaurant, or in a hospital setting, alone.

Please: don’t be that kind of parent who turns their back as their kids get underfoot.
That is how people get hurt.
