You can Stay Within the Rules or Break Them
There are only a few ways to look at the rules in life. We can walk within them, push the boundaries, or ignore them altogether. Playing by the rules is not just for kids and games. The approach we take to life (fair or cheat) seems to be set in our nature during the early years. Keep this in mind as your young ones play in the neighborhood or compete in school and activities. We can set the example for them to grow into strong adults. There is often that desire to find a win. However, when this causes rules to be broken, it can paint them as easily ignored.
This seemingly harmless path can lead to struggles in later life and constant respect issues. When we teach a child to ignore the rules when they can get a win it sets a precedent. This can cause no end of headaches when the rules they break are ours.
