Stay-at-home dad Peter Rider shares his experience--the good, the bad, and the funny--with being detailed and clear when talking to his kids about all sorts of things. From having two gay dads to contracting head lice and more, he believes being explicit is the way to go. “One thing that I've been thinking about a lot over the past year, especially as my kids get a little older, is the balance between modeling behaviors vs. being really explicit and explaining things. I think I started out thinking that when it comes to values, kids really learn by seeing. But I think increasingly I've thought...about how you actually have to be really explicit about some things.” Be sure to check out our fantastic sponsors: BetterHelp offers affordable, private online counseling anytime, anywhere.
