Wow – yes Nancy! “It doesn’t make sense for parents to grant additional freedom until your child demonstrates that he/she can manage his/her present level of freedom.” THIS. This is going to be a game changer in conversations with Hunter & Julia. Thank you for these tools Nancy! There is no blame here, we can still have a close relationship and talk about these expectations. I know they would love to be involved in the decision making process for how things should be handled when there is no follow through, I’ve just never thought to ask them how they would like me to handle it.
