Healthy boundaries help us to prevent and solve problems with people we know – and to develop positive relationships that enrich our lives. Here are some tools for understanding and stating our boundaries in respectful, clear language, and for persisting with positive responses when someone has a negative reaction to a boundary. Remember Kidpower’s Underlying Principle from Ellen Bass, Founding Board President and Co-Author of “The Courage to Heal” and “Free Your Mind”: “Your safety and well-being are more important than anyone’s embarrassment, inconvenience, or offense!”Please Sign-up for our free community membership to access to this content and 100s more Kidpower resources.
