The Child is Sovereign

I believe more than ever that the next frontier of enlightenment and consciousness in parenting is the acknowledgment of the sovereignty of the child.

Unless and until society recognizes that children must have the right to not only express their emotions and feelings, but also state their preferences in the legal system, they will continue to be potential victims of-adults, who are acting in their own best interests.

If our society truly believes that early childhood experiences not only impact, but also shape, a child’s brain and sense of self, it will listen to children instead of catering to parents, who are often acting in their own best interests.
