Theoretical parenting principles

Summarized parenting rules after watching the documentary “Luck Duck”:

– set and enforce boundaries
– beyond those boundaries, don’t overcontrol. Learn to let go
– we learn to thrive on adversity. What doesn’t kill the child can make him/her stronger
– don’t give the child every materialistic thing he/she wants. Otherwise they won’t learn to see and cherish the most valuable things in life
– be sincere with your child to establish a connection

Respect cannot be commanded. It has to be earned.
