Keeping Her Safe

Puberty

Did you know that knowing what your daughter is doing and with whom she is spending her time decreases the likelihood that she will become involved in unsafe behaviors?

Sure, no child is perfect and your daughter is likely to test some limits and to make mistakes despite your best efforts. However, research shows that making your daughter accountable for keeping you informed of where she is and with whom she is spending her time actually decreases the likelihood that she will engage in risky behaviors. Of course, making sure you can easily contact her and verifying adult supervision is directly available are also important components to keeping her safe. Not only will your daughter will be less tempted to engage in unsafe behaviors under such close monitoring but she may also feel relieved to use her “nosy parents” as an excuse for not giving in to peer pressure that makes her uncomfortable.
