Select Quotes

You’ve got to be able to separate the behavior from the person. It requires you to not take the behavior personally when the behavior starts to happen that you wish didn’t happen. This concept really helps to get to a place where you aren’t being led by fear. It’s not something that is easy, and it certainly isn’t something that comes naturally as a parent, but allowing them to walk their path and establishing the connection, communication, and kindness helps the family to get to a place where the individual understands your intentions.
