Love and Logic recently sent out an email newsletter asking: Parenting Through Divorce: Are You a Rock … or Are You a Leaf? Being a rock means setting expectations in your children of limits, accountability and love at your home.
Dr. Charles Fay writes (excerpt):
When limits and accountability are provided within the context of love, kids know that the parent setting the limits is strong enough to keep them safe and secure. While they may waver and wander, the odds are extremely high that they will come back to you…their rock.
