In short, she says that a standard is a “start behavior” that is based on your wants and needs and a boundary is a “stop behavior” based on controlling the other person.

“Tricky behavior” can often be challenging and confronting for parents, these children are the ones that are often incredibly gifted academically or creatively and frequently grow up to be the movers and shakers of the world.
