When you set firm boundaries to your children, you are telling them: You can go up until here, because over there it is dangerous, and I am here to PROTECT you, because I CARE deeply for you.
When you establish boundaries in your children’s lives, you are showing them how much they are held, carried and LOVED by you, even when it’s not easy, nor comfortable, for you.
When you set healthy boundaries to your children’s behavior, you are teaching them about VALUES.
When you MODEL PERSONAL BOUNDARIES to your children, and do not allow them to treat YOU badly, you are teaching then how to apply personal boundaries, in THEIR OWN lives.
Boundaries are one of the highest forms of love (Janet Lansbury)
