For the child, the further and faster the proverbial snowball of his misbehav- ior rolls downhill, the more havoc it plays with his emotional health. Good research confirms what com- mon sense verifies: Disobedient kids are not happy campers. Parents who come to me for help saying, "My kid is driving me crazy" want me to fix the problem for their benefit, to prevent them further emotional toll. But the emotional toll of the problem is being visited primarily upon the child. He's being denied the right to a happy child- hood by parents who love him deeply but don't understand that – to employ a paraphrase – children do not thrive on love alone. Children need authority. They benefit greatly from having to accept that what their parents tell them. "Does that mean, John," a mother recently asked, "that I shouldn't give my teenager reasons for my decisions and instructions?" A child's age does not determine when it's time for parents to begin explaining themselves. The prereq- uisite to explanation is obedience. You cannot explain a child into obedience, but once obedience has taken root and is flourishing, you can venture the occasional explanation. I say occasional because obedient chil- dren do not generally ask for expla- nations. They are content without them; besides, they're usually able to figure them out on their own. A parent's love should be big and unconditional, but if it isn't bal- anced with equally big, unambiguous authority, it's most accurately termed enabling codependence. Likewise, if authority is big but love is weak and small, authority isn't authority at all; it's abuse of one form or another. The "trick" of this is letting the monster-in-the-making know, early on, when the monster first makes its appearance, that he will not be allowed to let his dark side rule either himself or the people he lives with. The formula can be expressed this simply: The child never gets any- thing even close to what he wants when he misbehaves; rather, when he lets his monster off the leash, he loses things he doesn't want to lose for memorable stretches of time. A child's covetous nature can be used to everyone's advantage. Some children get it quickly. Others, not so much. Which is why a sense of humor always helps.
