3. Learn when to Fight and when to Let Go
There are times when your child is going to do something or act a certain way, and it is going to worry you or upset you. You have two choices, you can fight to change your child, change his/her actions or change the situation. Or you can let the situation play itself out and hope that your child will learn a few valuable lessons. You must learn when to fight and when to let go, because if you do too much of either it will lead to disaster. If you fight to change your child or their situation too often then you are going to buy a massive amount of resistance from your child, partner, family, friends, school, and even society. Plus your child is going to start believing that your actions do not have his/her best interests at heart. On the other hand, if you let go too often then your child will not have any boundaries and go off the rails.
