Here are ways to help children understand the pledge and make it relevant.

• Talk about this pledge with your child.
• Make a poster for the fridge:  Have every member of the family trace their hand with a purple crayon and draw a red heart in the middle.
• Remind and reinforce: Conflicts are natural. Use these times to remind each other that there is a way to disagree without hurting others.
• Notice: When reading or watching TV identify characters/actors who control strong feelings and handle problems with others in a safe way.
