A parent writes:
“Natural consequences… one of my takeaways from the summit was to not be my kid’s executive function (at least as much), and allow natural consequences to happen. Yesterday was a test for me. My daughter started community college two weeks ago. Yesterday, she had classes start at 8a. Her alarm went off at 7a. And again at 7:09a. Then silence. I told her the night before I’d give her a ride as long as she was ready by 7:30a. But after that, I had commitments. At 7:19a I started getting anxious. At 7:24a I was irritated. I watched the clock tick down reminding myself not to save her. That was hard.”
