“…probably the most demanding, exhausting and frustrating role a human can take on…”
Nature provided us with the plumbing to be parents. Nature endowed us with a perfect reproductive system which has perpetuated our species for at least two hundred thousand years as far as we can so far determine.
Becoming a parent is rather straightforward and humans are prolific in numbers exceeding 7.6 billion. Some say our biggest challenge today is our population which is quickly exceeding the planet’s capacity.
Chunking down from here, there is parenting…probably the most demanding, most exhausting and most challenging role a human can take on. And, yet, our preparation and training for this job is negligible. We tend to use a ‘trial and error’ strategy with slight variations. And, despite this, for the most part, children survive.
“We did get smarter and stronger with each day of our life.”
Our own existence today is coloured powerfully by how we are raised by those amateur parental figures. When I asked my mother how she and my dad raised nine children when I was struggling to raise only three, she replied succinctly, “A lot of the time, you raised each other!”
I remember hearing my mom doing her housework at night after we were all in bed. Her own mother became a single parent when her spouse left the country, we suspect, leaving legal challenges in his wake. My father lost two fathers before he was 5 years old in factory mishaps. So he was raised by his single mother, there by lacking a typical paternal role model.
All of this reminds me, and I expect you as well, we did survive our novice parents. We did get smarter and stronger with each day of our life. And this continues even today. But, how did we make it through? How did we come through our past being nurtured by tired, overworked, untrained and untested parents? It is another one of those real miracles of nature!
“John will explain in a clear and concise manner, … how your family works…”
Remember last week what Lee Lacocca said, “The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family.” And this from a successful businessman. Then there was George Santayana, the philosopher, who was of the opinion that, “The family is one of nature’s masterpieces.”
Well, if you want to understand how you survived your own family, how all families function and especially how your family worked perfectly, please listen to Dr. John Demartini attached webinar entitled, 7 Powerful Parenting Skills.
Dr. Demartini was one of those kids labelled learning disabled. He’s evolved a bit since then. Typically today he speaks to audiences globally about 300 days a year touching over 60 countries and millions of lives.
As you watch the webinar, notice how the patterns John talks about played out in your family. They have to be there, all you have to do is uncover them. Then, you will see why you are who you are today, why you do what you do and why you have what you have. Enlightenment awaits you!
And, if you, or any of your children, carry a well intentioned label from a health professional like me, then, this is especially for you. You will receive new insight in how this occurs and how to see labelling as not in the way, but, on the way.
John will explain in a clear and concise manner, with examples, how your family works and how you are actually doing OK with your role in it. But, be skeptical, it will keep you attentive and learning just what you need for your future role as a parent, because, as you already know, it never really ends, it just changes in form.
And, remember, please feel free to share your thoughts with us on this remarkable webinar.
