The confidence is already within them, help bring it out with UC Talks.
UC Talks campaign equips parents to build up their child’s strengths. When youth have confidence in themselves and know their parent’s expectations, studies show they are empowered to make good decisions, better regulate their emotions, and develop healthy relationships.
In the 2018 Union County parent survey, many expressed their concern about the impact of these issues on students:
Do you know what slang terms are being used for drugs, sex, or parties?
How about the amount of time your child spends on social media or screen time?
Have you asked your child about the pressure they feel related to grades, peers, or school?
Being informed enables you to guide your child through difficult situations.
Have you noticed changes in your child such as energy level or mood? Are they getting ready for an important event like a test, a date, or a competition? Or is it something more serious?
These are times to check-in with your child and find out what is going on. Provide support or acknowledgment of their skills and choices.
Talk To Your Child
Spend one-on-one time with each child. They need personal time with you to share their thoughts and desires. Make sure they know your expectations and family values.
Express your confidence that they will be able to stand their ground when faced with tough decisions and that they have your support.
