Description

Should kids visit their parents? Must the government institute laws to make this a requirement? Parents wanting to create photocopies of themselves in their children. But even if children deep inside themselves want to move on, they might be so emotionally broken or enslaved that the very thought might not occur to them. Kahlil Gibran wrote in the Prophet, “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

  • Many of the folks who aren’t familiar with peaceful parenting would probably like to see real world examples, and parents who have already adopted the ideas would probably love to hear other parents’ ideas and methods for dealing with specific situations.   Let’s add some discussion of practice to the great discussions surrounding theory that are already ongoing.   I think it would be really constructive for a discussion to start like this: My kid is doing X. Do you guys have ideas or solutions for dealing with it?   I’ll get as much use out of this type of conversation as anyone, since my son is 2.5 and my daughter is seven weeks. So I’d love to see some posts!

  • I am a dance teacher with a lot experience and expertise in the field, and I find myself constantly surrounded by children who have no discipline, motivation, focus, or attention span to dig in and learn. It seems to me that the problem is bad diet, bad parenting, and I run into a brick wall not knowing what to do.  Is it reasonable to think that I, having most of the dance students for 1 or 2 hours per week, can have any effect on their development of intellect and physical intelligence? Can I really do anything about it, or should I just take whatever I can get and hope they decide to want to learn a skill sometime in the future?   I hope this isn’t too vague, I just would like advice on how to spur interest, especially in a subject that is extremely hard to learn.  Dance takes years and years of practice and focused attention to master, and even then the constantly shifting and developing body changes the course, presenting ever more new challenges.  How do you get the child to appreciate the journey?
