Living the Protective Factors

The most basic responsibility of a parent is to keep his or her children safe. We as parents know this and we work hard to do it every day. There are tons of products and information designed to help you keep your children safe from outside threats. But the first priority of a parent is to keep your children safe from internal threats within the household—to keep your children safe from you (on your worst day). The protective factors can assist you—not only as a framework, guidelines, and information that live in your head—but in day-to-day life. This book breaks it down—showing you how you can awaken to your potential as a parent by living the protective factors! Includes activities, questions for reflection, and more.
