Set Boundaries

Childcare with Wyclif. Beautiful. I can’t remember where I first read that you should never “negotiate” with kids, but it’s good advice: you can give the child choices, you can train the child towards freedom, but don’t give the child the idea that he has bargaining power over you. (Of course, I say this never having been a parent myself. Things could be different in the future, when I’m desperately trying to juggle screaming toddler triplets on a crowded subway train while everyone stares.)

    No, you’re on the right track. Just hold firm to that, and you’ll find the little monsters’ ‘ugly times’ to be less monstrous.
