Episode 025: Exploring Boundaries

Sheila and Maria invite you to explore the purpose and challenges of setting and living with boundaries as well as what we teach our young children when we establish boundaries for them and how they learn from those boundaries as they grow.

"To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today." - Barbara Johnson

 In this life, there are many forms of boundaries, both physical and social, and it's important as parents that we introduce our young children to the idea of boundaries so that they can learn to understand them and when and how to appropriately challenge them.  These decisions are complex and our goal is to help you make conscious decisions when navigating this difficult topic. 

In this episode, we share with you from our decades of experience as children, parents, and teachers the various parenting styles and approaches to boundaries we've seen and the results we have observed throughout the years.  We welcome you to participate with us in this conversation and to share with us from your own life experiences, successes, and challenges as well.
