Negative Influences on Children

How do you help your child make the right friends? What do you do when your child has a friend that your don’t approve of? How do you respond when you feel your son or daughter is being negatively influenced by someone else?

It’s difficult for parents to sit by and watch the values we’ve taught our kids slip away. One of the toughest things about parenting has been combating negative influences. These influences can come from a variety of sources, such as television, radio, internet, extended family, and friends at school. Our job as parents is to help our children navigate through these other influences to help them learn how to make wise choices.

There are several steps that parents can take to combat these negative influences:
  • Working to help your child choose friendships wisely
  • Learning how to respond when you don’t approve of their friends
  • Knowing the actions available when the negative influence takes control
