Parenting for Healthy Boundaries
Have you realised the most difficult healthy ‘boundaries’ we need to form are those around the people we love the MOST?
If we don’t LET our children form their own healthy boundaries with US ie the people they love the most – then how are they going to form them in healthy intimate relationships later on?
If we stop taking their behaviour personally (=our ego); stop living in fear of someone doing something ‘bad’ to them, or them going off on the ‘wrong track’ (who says its ‘wrong’ for them, just because it’s wrong for you anyway!?) – and get back into our NATURAL STATES of: TRUST LOVE GRACE – then those FB un-friendings, or locking theselves in their rooms, or needing time alone, or keeping a diary – won’t matter so much..
When your child has been given the gift of HOLDING ONTO THEIR OWN IN FACE OF YOU = getting practice to self-preserve with someone that means THE WORLD TO THEM (as well as the hand that feeds them, oh and let’s not forget clothes them lol) – then YOU have gifted them through the RITE OF PASSAGE INTO ADULTHOOD – with the best gift they could ever have – THEMSELVES!
