Do’s and dont’s. Homework guidelines. School regulations. Rules of the house. Curfews. Parental regimes. Boundaries. If it’s an adult’s job to set them, is it our job to test them? Breaking them, bending them, stretching them, twisting them. Nudging them, poking them, struggling to cope with them. Are we all just at it? No, we’re just pushing it.
