If you think your kids are too young to understand and implement these concepts, think again.
[save & share to refer back to!]
I say this a lot, and it bares repeating; Your kids do not think of themselves as little ones. They know they are physically little, but their stuff is
just as complex and just as big to them as our stuff is to us as adults. When I realized this, I started repeating themes and more complex lessons, and soon
I saw that they understood them and started choosing wisely on more occasions.
You are their first line of life offense and defense. You are who they need to get on their eye level and intentionally and lovingly guide them through these
situations so they are set up for success later on.
Boundaries for kids are so important. They get them ready to have a full life with healthy communication and healthy relationships. This is a trickle-down effect and can ultimately change the world. I know, I know, that sounds a little aggressive, but I believe it.
“But Lauren, I didn’t know any of this when I was their age, and I feel like a fraud telling them these things.”
They have NO idea! They think you walk on water!
You are healthier (I hope) now, and you have seen what life is like, so show them early on how to navigate it well.
Tell me below some things you say to your kids to teach boundaries.👇🏻
