Raising our children
Our Success in raising children is to try to teach them along traditional subjects is understanding that we live in Global Integral Society.
As parents we have to understand that we have to be friends with our children and discuss everything with them, but not where the child does not want to see us.
A common mistake that we as parents make today: Even when our child turns 20, we are still willing to run after and give our child orders, trying to protect the child from everything. We must understand a very simple rule: We cannot intervene in the process of upbringing.
We need to apply the method of integral upbringing in our homes. We need to be simple, sincere and friendly with our child, and show our child that we agree with the child’s upbringing. This is how the we will earn the child’s approval, so our child won’t consider us dinosaurs or worse, enemies.
We have to show our child that we trust them, and in various ways we need to let our child understand that we respect the child for taking the path to a new world.
The self-respect that we awaken in a child with our attitude toward the child is of utmost importance!
It is beneficial for parents to watch positively influenced television or Internet programs together with our children, meaning programs that show the correct kind of communication models and relationships, including programs that depict all kinds of problems along with their solutions, like a movie for the whole family highlighting the topic of “fathers and sons,” meaning gap between the generations.
Parents and children should end up having a common interest, which is to transform themselves to suit the new matrix that nature is presenting before them – to exist in and sense the integral, global humanity.
We should understand that finding common ground in the transition to the integral, global humanity is easier for children and more difficult for the parents. Transitional periods are never easy: There are all sorts of impulses, fluctuations, and deviations from the balanced state.
Who are we? We are the guide to the world in which the child found him- or herself. This means that you have to show the child this world and demonstrate how it works. Show the child how we treat others, how others treat us, how we share with others and do something for them. The child has to see all of this. And gradually, based on these extremely subtle interconnections, show the child that if s/he doesn’t participate in everything together with everyone and does not take others into consideration, if s/he does not desire to be integrally connected with them, then others won’t treat him the way s/he wants either. And that this is the reason for the child’s pains.
