Raising personally responsible children
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
We all want our children to learn to take responsibility for themselves in many areas. You will learn some very valuable information here about how to help your children become personally responsible for their feelings and wellbeing.
The desire to control and not be controlled is so great in many people that it often overrides caring about self and others. When you feel pulled at by someone to do what they want, do you go into automatic compliance or resistance? Next time you feel the pull, stop and ask yourself, "What is in my highest good, to do what this person wants or not?" This way you are making your own choices rather than being controlled by the other person or by your resistance.
