What our behaviours are teaching our kids
EVER used the old "because I said so” as a part of your parenting tool kit?
I certainly have. This used to work such a treat, a solid end to any objection. But times are changing.
Children are switched on and "because I said so” no longer cuts it. Children are looking at what we do, not just what we say. They are looking to us for guidance and as we experience increasing rates of sickness, burnout from work, and detrimental coping habits we are not painting an aspirational picture.
