The Importance of Teaching Your Child to Talk To Strangers

    So true, Eryn! As a kindergarten teacher, it can be very much a part of the curriculum to stress stranger danger and to go over and over the rules of Do Not Talk To Strangers….but also by only teaching that we are teaching kids to not greet neighbors, make new friends, or be a vocal part of their community. Tough to find that appropriate balance. Beautiful article.

      Thank you Janelle! I can’t imagine the difficulty of trying to teach that balance to so many kiddoes!

    Beautiful writing and great photos. I hope you’re writing a book!

      Thank you, Donna 🙂 That is a big encouragement to me. A book is in the works 😉 Slowly…but surely…
