We all make mistakes and we all break the rules at some point in our lives. Learning from our mistakes is one of the most effective teaching tools. Therefore, the question is; what happens if a child/teen obeys every rule they're given, 100% of the time? Does that shelter them from normal human experiences? Does it put them at a disadvantage versus people who have broken the rules and learned from their mistakes? We make these rules to protect our children, but if followed religiously, would these rules hurt them? Where might you be if you had obeyed all your parents rules?
