Setting Boundaries For Your Kids

Setting Boundaries For Your Kids: "A two year tries to touch something you’ve told him a hundred times is off-limits. A ten year old goes beyond the perimeters you’ve set for her in the neighborhood. A sixteen year old stays out a half hour past his curfew.

No matter what age your kids are, the boundaries you set for them are bound to be tested. As the parent, the reasons for these restrictions are obvious. You don’t want your toddler to touch an outlet because he might get hurt. You prohibit your ten-year-old to go outside of the neighborhood because of the busy street that lies beyond. You want your sixteen-year-old home at a certain time because of nighttime dangers."
