But if we want our kids to be able to make good choices in our absence and to develop into the truest and fullest version of themselves, it is essential that we avoid the "because I said so" approach (programming) and instead encourage their ability to ask questions and understand why they "should" do anything.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
