Healthy Boundaries and Children

 

Have you ever noticed that children need healthy boundaries?

Not only do children in general need healthy boundaries, but also the Inner Child we all have within (and this is actually the whole reason why I created the Inner Child Practice described in my book Your Cardinal Connections, so if you're not familiar, check it out here).

Healthy boundaries are important for children, for adults, and for life in general, right?

We all need healthy boundaries to establish limits that keep us on track and lead us to a beautiful, harmonious, balanced life.

Whenever there are no healthy boundaries, there is abuse. We're either invaded, or invading others because of our lack of awareness.

So think about the energy of healthy boundaries and how important they are for children.

As children, we create healthy boundaries - or not.

In my practice, I see a lot of people with this problem. As adults, many people in their families and social life don't really know boundaries.

Now most importantly, if you're a parent, it's your job to create healthy boundaries for your children.

You're the one who's designated to teach them about healthy boundaries (for more info on the parent's role with the child and the idea of hierarchy in a family, click here).

You need to be assertive about limits.

Children will always test limits because they want to know how far they can go - and they plead authority. Authority is not oppressive, and it's not aggressive either. It's a healthy energy that shows them where to go, how to proceed, and when to stop.

Children need an authority figure.

Observe yourself in your childhood. If you haven't received clear, healthy boundaries from your parents, just observe it. Maybe it's the first time you even think about it. Just allow yourself to observe without judgment.

If you are a parent, ask yourself this question - are you benefiting your children with the clarity of healthy boundaries?

Or do you allow them to go crazy not respecting older people, other places, and not behaving well in social environments?

It's SO powerful to understand healthy boundaries. If you pay attention and develop this state of awareness, you will not benefit just yourself, you'll greatly benefit your kids most of all.

And you'll benefit your community and humanity too.

Remember:

everything starts and ends in the human heart.

So when we do our part, the whole world is much happier.
