When you brought your baby home, you may have anticipated the sleepless nights, crying spells, teething baby, and just about a dozen other scenarios...
But you likely didn’t imagine that becoming a parent would make you realize the quality of your boundaries.
You may have been unaware or even unbothered by those who pushed your boundaries before, but becoming a parent raised the stakes.
Parenthood has made you realize that your boundaries protect your child, too. Parenthood has also made crystal clear what you value and what you will and will not tolerate.
But that doesn’t mean it makes it any easier to enforce.
Your boundaries may need some attention if there is someone in your life that continues to overstep your limits, creating tension in your life.
Still unsure if you could use some help with boundaries?
Check out these scenarios and see how you feel:
Do you have someone in your life who...
✓ Comes over unannounced, even when you don’t want them to?
✓ Leads you to believe that you’re parenting wrong because it’s not how they parent?
✓ Takes on the role of your child’s parent and says things like “that’s my baby”?
✓ Kisses your child even when you’ve asked them not to?
✓ Comments on your body size or the food you eat?
✓ Brings gifts for your child(ren) even when you’ve asked them not to?
✓ Makes passive aggressive comments toward you or your family?YEP, I CAN RELATE
If you can relate to these statements or have a few of your own, you’re familiar with the chaos that accompanies boundary issues.
You may struggle with speaking up because you fear hurting someone’s feelings. Or you may be tired of trying time and again to set your boundaries when someone in your life continues to push back.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, our workshop can help!
