16. Share Your Own Feelings On The Topic
It's also good for your kids to know you have feelings, too. You can tell them something makes you sad or scared. The important thing is modeling how to handle the feelings, as opposed to hiding them. 

For example, if you're talking about homelessness, you might say, "I feel sad when I see homeless people, which is why we donate money to the food bank to help feed them." Showing your kids there are actions they can take to address their feelings is a valuable life skill.
