One key to good parenting…

…is coming to that realisation and applying it. But when you grew up in a culture where either respect or autonomy rarely “made sense” in the same paragraph as kids, that’s a nearly insurmountable challenge. Instead, too many pass the twistedness on to the next generation, and/or spending decades getting their heads on straighter. Or just not having kids.

I’ll bet that your kids have a pretty good idea how lucky they are, just by looking around.
