Intentional Parenting - The Basics
Presented by Duffy Robbins
A big part of the parenting task is simply doing it with intention - with a sense of purpose, proactive parenting as opposed to reactive parenting. When parents operate on the basis of core values and set intentions, the parenting task becomes more about guidance and less about hand to hand combat.
In this session, we’ll look at some of those core values and set intentions that form and inform our task as parents of teenagers:
The Incarnation Principle, and how it reminds us that good parenting is like teaching your child to drive a car
The Baby Step Principle, and why wise parents learn to celebrate small victories
The Emperor Penguin Principle and what it says about the importance of patience
The Morning Sickness Principle, and why we go through labor twice with each child
