parenting teens when they aren't teens

Our children are young.  But we're trying to teach them now, the things we know they won't care to hear later.  Gems like:

If you don't like how someone is treating you, don't hang out with them.

You get to decide who touches your body. 

It's ok to be mad but you don't have a right to hurt people.

Doing laundry


If you don't have the money, you can't buy it.

People are more important than things.

Practice is how you get good at something.

Be on time.

Be kind.

Ask for something nicely.

Keep your mind on the goal and don't get in trouble because you got bored waiting for the goal to happen.

Keep trying.
