Another important relationship boundary to review is how to verbally communicate with family members, peers, teachers and caregivers. Help your children understand the need for respect, positive conflict resolution, and assertive skills in developing their communication skill set. Teach them how to express their feelings by identifying their emotions and telling the other person how they are feeling at any given time.
At this age, healthy relationship boundaries are taught through modeling these kinds of touch and communication rules in the home, and through practice using role play. Children with healthy relationship boundaries grow into teens and adults that can tolerate stress, show tolerance and respect for diversity, and engage in healthy romantic relationships.
