Parenting is definitely one of the most difficult jobs that has the most at stake. Your child’s future, your relationship with your child, your relationship with your partner, your child’s mental health…your mental health! These, and so many more, are all at stake when you first begin the parenting journey. I fully believe that people parent the best they can with the tools they have. Sometimes we just need a few more tools! Tools that can help us gain a broader understanding, or tools that help us become stronger and more skilled at parenting.
The following article is one of those tools that will hopefully encourage you to keep “fighting the good fight”. Mr. Wallace, our Vice Principal, passed this article on to me, and I’d like to share it with you! As summer is coming, I encourage you to take a look at the rules in your home, and remember that they are there for a purpose – to teach your child boundaries, to teach your child how to live with “no”, and in all of it to show your child that you love them enough to set healthy boundaries.
