Boundaries and Limits Workshop
"When we fail to set boundaries and hold people accountable, we feel used and mistreated. This is why we sometimes attack who they are, which is far more hurtful than addressing a behavior or a choice." - Brene Brown
Much of parenting is being able to establish healthy and safe boundaries and limits so that your children will feel supported as they adventure into an identity all their own. This workshop will give you an opportunity to reflect on your own boundaries and limits and how they show up in your relationship with your child.
As parents we have choice. We can choose how we will go forth and give set choices to our children so they feel empowered and valued. We can find the "Yes" behind the no and guide our children to the more optimal choices where you and they will feel joy in their exploration, curiosity, and wonder.
Healthy boundaries/limits are physical, emotional, and psychological constructs we create and maintain in order to feel that each person's own identity is safe in the world. While they may be flexible, boundaries help us set limits so we can be in functional relationships that enrich, support, and inspire us. When we respect ourselves and set good physical, emotional, and psychic boundaries/limits with others, we give ourselves a protected space that lets our unique abilities and characteristics bloom into our full potential. This form of self-care, in turn, invites us to love an equally unique other person in a safe and functional way.
