Over time we strip them of their boundaries. We edit them down and bend and mold them so that we are content with their behavior and so that they don’t make a scene. We want them to be “respectful” at all costs, even if it means they must lose themselves. Slowly, they do. They begin to distrust that voice inside that whispers “no” because the people who they trust the most, don’t advocate for them and their limits. They don’t question the system; the inheritance of this people pleasing or neglect or perfectionism— oh no, they question THEMSELVES. Instead of learning that the way they’re being treated is wrong, they begin to internalize that THEY ARE WRONG.
It’s not hard to advocate for a child. It is uncomfortable but we are the adults and we can carry that discomfort. Our babies are worth it.
Courses on Boundaries, Heal from Codependency, Stewardship, and Rising Daughters are all available immediately for access to every active DYW member. Not only do you receive the self-paced video courses, but you get access to a monthly masterclass (including all the previous ones), bonus content, and email support with me.
