Because I Said So

Writes Kicking it Unchool:

While raising your children, arm them with the rules they can take with them when they leave your home. The universal rules that govern us all. “Because I said so” doesn’t mean jack once they leave your house. Teach them the real reason to do or not do things. If you can’t come up with a better reason than “because I said so”, it’s time to rethink your expectations.
