it’s important to remind ourselves why we impose restrictions. Maybe it’s because we know it will make them a better adult, do better at school, or sleep better. Perhaps it’s simply ‘I love you too much to allow you to behave like that’ or ‘I respect you too much to allow you to do what you want or have what you want right now (because it is not good for you’

Keep in mind that they are just doing what they need to do, so we forgive them for their behaviour and attitude - but also ourselves if we have a less than positive feeling towards them...
