It can't fail, because we won't let it fail.
Children need limits. Heaps of them. Almost constantly throughout the day. But that doesn't mean we have to remind them of those limits aggressively. We don't need to be their first bully. We can be kind and firm as we hold our boundaries and help them to learn what is and isn't appropriate, just as we would with a friend or a colleague.
If you want your child tor respect you then that begins with respecting them. It takes A LOT OF PRACTICE to unlearn the ways that you were parented, but I promise it's worth it for the connection you'll foster with your child. You've got this.
