Day 20 - Combining Love and Limits - Why Boundaries Matter

Why do we set boundaries?
• the foundation of effective discipline is unconditional love
• a child growing up wants and needs to know where the boundaries are and who is going to enforce them

Discipline develops three things:
• self- discipline (for morally responsible behavior)
• a respect for authority (parental and other)
• a sense of security

Question:
Have you tried one of the five love languages in a new way? What happened?
