Knowing the boundaries is important!
This lesson was driven home to us this week as we spent time at Joleen’s aunt and uncle’s house in New Jersey. Because it was a new place, Ethan didn’t know the boundaries — everything was in play.
We had to watch him constantly to keep him from getting into things he needed to stay out of — fragile things, the dog’s food dish, a large cactus plant, etc.
As Ethan matures it will become more and more important that he knows where the boundaries are. Hopefully, learning the boundaries now will prepare him for a strong, healthy life down the road.
This week at Jim and Wanda’s, Ethan learned to open a door for the first time, making knowing the boundaries now even more important!
