Just the title of this parenting fundamental tells us that parenting is a big job! If we want to help our children grow into responsible adults, with a moral compass and a conscience that guides them, we need to keep in mind that our goal, even when they are teens, is to help them thrive and become independent.

As Laura says in this podcast, “The world is not their mother.”

The five mantras Laura Gauld and I discuss are,

  1. Do not do for your children what they can do for themselves.
  2. The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.
  3. Value success and failure
  4. Treat your child as if they were someone else’s
  5. As a matter of practice, expect your child to do things they may not want to do, just because.
