BFBN: consistently parenting your different children

It's Babywise Friendly Blog Network week.  Each day, one of us will be writing on the same topic.  This week, our topic is Personalities.

Today, Valerie has written about how we, as parents, can be consistent, yet also have the flexibility to parent each of our children differently.  I love what she says when she talks about the difference between equal and fair:
"It isn't even appropriate for your 4 year old to have the exact same freedoms as your 7 year old had when he was 4. Same age, but a different person. The current 4 year old might need more or fewer freedoms. Maybe the number won't necessarily be different, but what is allowed will be different."  - Valerie
