I Believe That Consistency

“I believe that consistency is helpful and even necessary for children’s healthy emotional growth, but the consistency I mean is each separate parent’s consistency.  Knowing what to expect, from a mother or a father day by day is part of the security a young child needs as he or she strives to grow in his or her own way.

But something else children need is the under-standing that every person is different. With that understanding can come children’s appreciation of their own differences and the courage to be who they are-each one different from everybody else.”
