Most people have witnessed a parent and child struggling in a public place. Perhaps it has been a child having a meltdown in the middle of a store, a parent who has lost their patience and is yelling at or slapping their child, or a child who has wandered away and is in an unsafe situation. These situations can be uncomfortable for everyone involved. Parent-child conflicts present problems of risk to safety and liability for companies, disruption of sales, and harm to public image. Yet few people know what to do when they occur.
The purpose of OneKindWord is to raise awareness about parent-child conflicts in public and empower people to step in helpfully when they see a stressed parent or a child who is unsafe.
OneKindWord offers a workshop that provides employees with the skills needed to identify these situations and provide support and assistance to parents and children having a difficult time.
