Parenting Our Future

Sep 14, 2021

What is the difference between a standard and a boundary anyway? Well, my guest Bridget Richard is helping us understand the difference so we can live our lives with more authenticity and peace! In short, she says that a standard is a “start behavior” that is based on your wants and needs and a boundary is a “stop behavior” based on controlling the other person.

In this episode, we talk about:

● The difference between standards and values

● How powerful standards can be

● how to communicate with someone who has violated your boundaries

● How to communicate using the “oreo” and “Daisy” method
