FREE Parenting Tip: Our children need to take responsibility for their actions and we need to show them how. Being aware of the gap that allows us to choose our own response helps with this task.
FREE Parenting Tip: If we use our power to build respect and to guide our children, it will help us set a strong foundation for the years ahead. If we use our power only to get our way, it will cause us much grief and frustration. The choice is ours, and we do have the power to make a difference.
