Ideas for Healthy Parenting: Emotional Boundaries

Mari Levy, MA, MFTi, writes in the blog on setting healthy emotional boundaries with your children.


She states:

healthy parenting means you love and accept them for who they are, set reasonable expectations and consequences for unacceptable behavior, and in other ways provide a “stable bow” from which your child (the arrow) flies. Accepting your child as a whole, unique person with his or her own path to follow is part of the bittersweet job of parenthood.
Ms. Levy gives additional reasonable, proactive advice for parents in her article.  The full blog post is here.
