Who’s in Charge? The Delicate Balance of Boundaries with the Gifted Dr. Dan Peters & Lisa Van Gemert

How do you set Boundaries?

First, evaluate your motives.

You will need to shift them over time.

It’s important to involve kids in planning their time.

What are your goals for the boundaries?

Talk about boundaries in general.

Govern Yourself. {so no one else has to}

Let kids set some of their own boundaries.

Know Perspective

And where are your SHOES?

Just make sure you can see it their way before you go all cray-zay.

You do not need to do this.

I mean, who has a kangaroo?

Don’t be this family

Make connections to motives clear.

Don’t get into this.

Contract it out.

Dr. Google does not know whereof he speaks.

Don’t expect this kind of balance.

Should they have the same boundaries?

Oh, prefrontal cortex, where art thou?

Choose your fence with care.

It’s easier to loosen than tighten.

So let’s talk fences.

Privacy Fence

Chain link: fences with holes

Ranch fences

fence rules

Build the same fence.

Repair me!

Go build a great fence!
