I do have a golden nugget of parenting advice that I think serves a lot of families really well. And that is, to whatever extent you can, have your child practicing making choices from as early as you possibly can. When they're two years old, lay out two different outfits, either of which you'll be happy with, and let your child choose. That makes it easier for them when they need to choose friends, when they need to choose whether to drink or not, when they need to choose colleges. Get them in the habit of making good, rational decisions at as early an age as you possibly can and they'll be much better at it when they're adults.
