Unconditional Love Doesn’t Mean Unconditional Approval

There never was a parenting “users manual,” of course, and parenting is even more fraught than ever, but it’s still regrettable that so many parents aren’t as confident and sure-footed as they might be. Children feel and react to that reality.

The inherent, unshakeable parent/child bond which includes love, dependence, hope, and duty is the wellspring of emotional power.  Children need and thrive with parents who model, encourage, and expect effort and standards. It’s truly necessary and it really helps. It’s the loving thing to do.
