Do you Mind? Curing the disease to please, teaching children healthy boundaries
Presenter: Adene Davis
Setting boundaries for children is an essential component of parenting. Boundaries help children feel safe and secure. But as children get older, and social interaction become more complex, we need to teach children to skilfully set boundaries for themselves and respect the boundaries of those around them.
Part of this skill is recognising and responding with agency to one’s needs. Often children experience guilt for saying no to others. Children may inadvertently come to depend on the acceptance and validation of others, falling prey to the disease to please.
Teaching children about self-value and boundaries is incredibly empowering in living a meaningful life.
