- Look for ways to settle arguments and disagreements without
violence. Remember: if you resort to violence to settle disputes, a
child may well follow your example. Be a good role model.
- Use good manners to help ease tensions that can lead to violence.
Teach kids that showing respect for themselves and for the needs of
others can prevent crime.
