Pain should be regarded as a good thing. W/o pain, there is no growth. "We change when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing...Life is not about avoiding suffering. Life is about learning to suffer well...parents who step in & rescue their children from suffering will be replaced later in life w/other codependent people, drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, or other addictions." pg. 141

Motivation-children need to learn how to be self motivated. For instance it's our job as parents to allow a child to suffer consequences of his actions or rather poor choices. If we can learn this in order to develop our children to have godly character, then we can trust they will make good choices even when we're not around. Nagging & forcing them to do things only propels them to rebel when no one's looking.

The best way to receive respect from your child is to demonstrate it. i.e. showing respect to your children and your spouse. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

"Letting the reality of the child's world teach him & having the empathy & limits of the parent to support the learning process make up the best recipe for learning to respect boundaries." p. 109 -Allowing my children to suffer the consequences when they are disrespectful is the most healthy. Help them think things through and take ownership of what they did-no blameshifting allowed!
