Reading Masterly Inactivity with Charlotte Mason (free download!) and came across this quote:
...if you are in the fence-building stage with little ones, mark the boundaries clearly, knowing that you are operating under God's authority. Be faithful to establish your God-given authority now.
It's good to be reminded that God created the family and the structure of authority within the family. These days, it's easy to get caught under the thought that we should give up our authority to government, family, friends.....perfect strangers in the grocery store! ;-)
