Ages 7-10: Respecting Others' Belongings and Privacy


Children of all ages get curious. Make sure your child understands boundaries:

  • Go over rules for privacy, ownership, and space in your household. Tell your child she always needs to ask permission before touching or taking things from family members and friends.
  • As a family, make or decorate door signs or doorknob hangers for everyone's bedroom to show that it's their own space. Ask your children to knock before entering if a door is closed.
