Continue setting limits on their behavior

Continue setting limits on their behavior

"Continue setting limits on their behavior"

Part 5 of our series deals with limiting behavior.  Dr. Laurence Steinberg recommends parameters for children's behavior.  As they age and flex their independent muscles, young people need to understand there are limits to acceptable behavior.  Staying up later, more latitude in daily choices, and freedom of expression should all increase with age.  However, a laissez-faire approach to raising your children can be disastrous.  A child that has a parent who sets boundaries and expectations, intrinsically knows they're loved.  The extremes of parenting are neglect and micro-managing.  With love and attention, let your child know what they cannot say or do.  Red lines should be drawn and enforced.
