This family tip pairs nicely with Red Ribbon Week (being drug-free) and our unit of Personal Safety. Asserting yourself shows others that you respect yourself and will stand up for yourself. Asserting yourself is different from passive behaviors by people who may be too afraid and too quiet to stand up for their rights. Assertive behaviors are also very different from aggressive, violent behaviors that hurt others. Please talk with your child about the difference between these behaviors. Encourage your child to practice strong, assertive behaviors when appropriate.
