It’s not hard. Boundaries, Snoopy sometimes I need to be alone and listen to the Holy Spirit shirt consequences, and consistency. Teach them all of the above when they are young and you have far fewer problems as they get older. Barring any disorders that adversely alter behavior or learning, of course. I certainly agree with the tenor of this post. As to requiring the child to look up to the parent bc of parent’s standing posture, I agree. I do, however, believe a parent or adult should–when possible–adopt a same-level height when interacting with the child unless the child is being corrected. I disagree. I don’t think, “because I said so” should be an acceptable statement to anyone.

Best Snoopy sometimes I need to be alone and listen to the Holy Spirit shirt
I believe explaining why Snoopy sometimes I need to be alone and listen to the Holy Spirit shirt (even if it leads to arguments) teaches kids to think ahead and realize why they should or shouldn’t be doing something when you aren’t there to tell them. If it makes sense to them, they are more likely to realize the consequences. Arguing isn’t always a bad thing, you just need to patiently explain why their argument isn’t always correct. Do you really want your kid growing up not knowing how to think for themselves and relying on someone else to tell them what to do because no one had ever explained to them how to make the right choices for themselves?
