About this Discussion

What can parents do that will really help to protect kids’ mental health? Make home a safe place. A really safe place. You might be thinking, What? Of course our home is a safe place. Think again. Every day brings something new to worry over and the blurry lines between work and home can make it hard to leave your stress at the door.

Peace at Home Parenting Founder Ruth Freeman, LCSW and Tanika Eaves, PhD, discuss seven principles for creating a safe, peaceful home which are built on decades of research focused on parent-child relationships and outcomes for kids.
