I had an interesting statement shared with me around family dynamics, the law laid down by a mother: ‘You all show up or no one shows up’.
A family philosophy which is the ultimate equalizer. It eliminates sibling rivalry and makes everyone clearly understand that no one sibling is more important that the other.
A great saying and one I will remember for my children, as I have seen what happens when it is not central to the family’s values. In the end, someone is always left on the outside.
