Rules that seem simple and logical can become problematic when rigidly applied or applied without understanding the principles behind them. Something to keep in mind. Without a focus on principles, rules may be abandoned or become overly complex as they evolve.
Rules can help reinforce principles, but success requires mastering and living true principles, not just a patchwork of rules.
What has worked for you in teaching rules and principles to your children or to others?
