Four parental bottom lines:
1) We, (parents), will not be disrespected in our own home.
2) You are responsible for your own actions.
3) Only tell yourself truth. There is one who tries to speak lies to you. No matter who you choose to believe, #2.
4). Have joy. If you make everyone else miserable, we go back to #1. If you have joy, even if things aren’t going your way, then truth, respect and responsibility tend to take care of themselves.
