setting limits and enforcing them is actually what kids not only need, but want. Consistency is very important. I worked in early childhood development for a number of years and this is a basic principle: set the limits and be consistent about enforcing them.
Interesting is my observation and experience that children who were allowed to run free with no limits, no discipline, innately knew that is what they wanted and I know several who at the age of 18 enlisted in the military.... a loved it.
