We’ve heard all the rules about parenting and tried to utilize the guidelines we’ve been given. At some point, we may have even memorized Deuteronomy 6. But so far, the formulas haven’t worked. That foundation we so carefully laid is falling apart.

Maybe we need to re-examine the boundaries. Utilizing the concept of boundaries helps us determine the borders of parenting and sends clear signals to our children.
