Another great one from Elizabeth Pantley!

I love love love! Her books. I recently started reading Hidden Massages: What our Words and Actions are Really Telling our Children. I came across this line, that I have always used as my mantra:

Making our children ultimatley responsible for their own behavior doesn't hinder them. Instead, it frees then to achieve success, unencumbered by the fralities that can readily drail a less-disciplined person, and it helps them to find confidence and happiess in their lives when they reach adulthood. Isn't this one of our highest goals as parents?

I love it! More people need to start making their children become responsible for their actions. You see too many parents getting mad at someone else for something their child did, in turn relaying to that child that they will not be held accountable for their actions. This could be disastrous in the long run!
