Setting boundaries

When we give in to our child out of guilt, they actually internalize a feeling of “badness.” When we give in to our child because it is convenient – and we don’t want to deal with the conflict – we are building up resentment – which may come out later. Instead, make decisions that feel right for you. If your child gets upset, give empathy and validation (without changing your mind). This builds peace, understanding and respect.
