Even though today’s FASD strategy tip or NB approach is huge, I won’t offer much to illustrate as it’s self-explanatory. It is a difficult one for parents of any child to follow. We want to instill values in our children – the values we hold near and dear – but your child is a unique individual with his or her own needs, wants and desires. Your job is to teach him/her, but also to let him/her be free to develop in his/her own way. Give your child the freedom on things that really don’t matter in the long term. Is not brushing her hair such a big deal?

Before I adopted the maiden a co-worker said to me: “If your daughter wants to wear a hat to bed, let her.” In other words, “don’t sweat the small stuff” and give your child some control over his or her own life.
