Offer freedom with boundaries

“Kids need freedom within boundaries. It is like a tunnel. The edges are solid and you give them freedom to bounce around a bit within those walls as they move ahead.” – Danny Hill, entrepreneur

  • By giving your child small amounts of freedom they learn valuable decision making skills
  • They will make mistakes, but they will also learn from those mistakes
  • And yet boundaries are still important, to keep your child safe and protected. It is a delicate balance
