Have you always wondered what boundaries really are and how to hold them with your family?
In this six-part series on the University of Alchemy, I address six common mistakes most people make when setting boundaries. It answers the questions:
1. What are boundaries?
2. How do I hold a boundary?
3. What boundaries should I hold with my kids?
4. Why don’t they listen when I enforce them?
5. Why do I feel guilty when I hold them?
6. Why do people keep violating my boundaries?
I wanted to do what’s best for my child when it came to setting limits, but I had to rely on research to figure out what was healthy because I knew what I was shown wasn’t it.
The old authoritarian parenting paradigm leaves us ill-prepared to instill healthy boundaries because it was based on violating ours.
Even the emotion of anger, which alerts us to a personal boundary violation, was rejected— or expressed onto us by parents whose own needs weren’t getting met.
I’m passionate about helping others with setting boundaries and holding limits because they are the foundation for how we consciously relate to ourselves and others.
