“I talk about this with my kids a lot, the four boundaries being: You can’t tell me what I’m thinking, you can’t tell me what I’m feeling, you can’t fucking touch my body/you can’t do anything with my body, and don’t touch my stuff. And those are the main ones. Literally if ever there’s a little moment between Onyx and Ever I’ll just go ‘which of the four was it?’ You can’t slap her, you can’t grab his things.”

Alanis Morissette, singer, songwriter and mother to Ever, 8, Onyx, 2, and one more on the way, on resolving sibling conflict, to Self, June 2019.

Hay Congratulations on another little one. I wonder if it is a girl on boy? Please feel free to give me all the gossip about being a Mother. I may use the tips in the future. Good going with Mothermag catalog Alanis Morissette. I love your music and your character. Peace & love from Fan club Joanna C.
