Permissiveness

"Permissiveness You can (and should) set limits as necessary. And then acknowledge his unhappiness about those limits. Don’t be defensive. It’s important to your child that you be able to tolerate his disappointment and anger." The importance of empathy by Melissa Corkhill


Empathy: Foundation of Emotional Health
What Empathy Isn’t:  Permissiveness.

"You can (and should) set limits as necessary. And then acknowledge his unhappiness about those limits. Don't be defensive. It's important to your child that you're able to tolerate his disappointment and anger at you, and that you love him even when he's not in touch with his love for you."
