Love = self-control / mutual respect
Teaching your kids about Respect and Manners - Make them do chores, otherwise as they grow older, they can't fend for themselves. Are you raising your kids to think they are above needing to use manners, Respect or take care of their things? If there are No Rules or Consequence taught, then when they get a JOB, it's going to be difficult for them to keep. Just saying.

Still Beautiful - "Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes don't see as well and you get loose in the joints and they are very shabby. "But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand" The Velveteen Rabbit
