The students will be dealing with their truth. This section will come with a downloadable Workbook to be used for each lecture of this section.  

Acceptance of Ignorance Section Overview

This lesson starts the section off with a truth principle. Parenting takes time so this lesson is about time. Remember to use the workbook.

Time Principle

Parenting is a long term commitment filled with change. This lesson is about the principle of change.

Change Principle

The final principle to build our foundation for moving forward is the Rule Of absolutes. Parenting can could with expectations and thinking that falls into black and white, right and wrong mindsets. These mindsets can add unnecessary stress. Understanding this principle is as important as the Time and change principles. 

Rule of Absolutes

This course is about being open minded about parenting. It explains that as we gain experience we will naturally begin running closed minded programs to help us with making choices moving forward in life. But these close programs can bite us if we refuse to look at the open side of things. 

Open & Close Mental Programs

The only way we learn is by being inquisitive. Our culture in parenting is to act as if we know everything we need to know which gets us into trouble. SO the lesson is about being open enough to ask questions as often as you can. 

Be Inquisitive

This lesson follows up from the previous lecture. As parents as must accept our ignorance and we need to do more than just ask questions we need to be open to help and support. 

Help & Support

Parenting Unity “the dangers of violating the agreement”

This lesson talk about modeling from a sibling or minors perspective. While Parents will likely be the primary influencers in modeling, siblings and other young children will be as well. The imprinting to modeling stages of transition with siblings often give rise to the copy cat effect. 

The Copy Cat effect

As parents we learned our behavior from our parents. What we learned we will either copy or reject. When we reject without other options to learn from we end up with the 180 degree effect. Parents and Students will learn of the cycles of this effect. 

The 180 degree effect

Parents and Students will learn that our children see everyone as a model to copy so this lesson speaks about what we need to do to become aware of the influencers who will act as the models for our children.
