When we force a child to do something they don't want to do, we're raising an adult who:⁣
👉 is less likely to respect others and their will⁣
👉 is more likely to do what others say even if it doesn't feel right⁣

Forcing children to do something, even with the best of intentions, is a form of abuse that they might later use in their own relationships.⁣

Teaching adults around us to respect children’s will and ask for their consent is just as important as teaching children to say no.⁣

Brave is not being afraid and doing it anyway; brave is listening and honoring our own emotions regardless of what others say.⁣
