Commentary on Parenting

#

It has really been a pleasure for me, and I’m aware that there are human beings that are grateful for the information and for its impact on their lives.

But in fact, the thing that's always touched me the most, and has really been the cornerstone of my work, is my work with mothers—they are the guardians of the future.

For most human beings, the most fundamental things they're going to learn in this life are from their mother. The first true human bond is that bond with the mother.

You can't change the world, but you can change the way the world is educated.

One of the things that's been so impressive for me over the years is the impact the knowledge has had, not simply on the lives of the adults that I'm dealing with but the way that is translated into their relationship with their families and their children.

It's an extraordinary opportunity to understand the nature of your child's Design, I know this myself. It allows you to be free of all of the uncertainties and concerns that arise out of what it is to be a parent, and having the responsibility for another human being.

Understanding the nature of your child also means you can offer them the privilege of an environment in which they can grow up as themselves. This is quite rare, and it is really what the knowledge is for.

This knowledge is for children.

Unfortunately, you can't just get it directly to the children. You have to get it to the adults, and it is only through the adults that you can really impact children. But the knowledge is for them, so they can be raised correctly and live the full potential of what it is to be a nine-centered being.

In understanding your children you get to see what in essence is the way for them, how to deal with them, how to enrich their process, how to make them feel better about the nature of who they are; ultimately, it is about respect for who they are.

This is probably the most profound aspect of what it is to be a parent aware of your child's Design. The opportunity to respect their nature, not to try to condition them to be something they are not, but to accept them for what they are, precisely what they are, without that being a good or a bad thing. Because in fact, it is simply a uniqueness. Embrace that uniqueness in your child.

Human Design provides many things that can be of enormous value in parentingnot just simply understanding your child's design and how to treat them according to their type, their definition, and their conditioning, but also how to raise them in terms of nourishment. The right nourishment for your child is extraordinarily important for their development as a being, and all these things are possible because of the awareness of the parent.

In the work that I do, perhaps nothing is as significant as working with those that have children, because through them we have the potential for a truly different generation to emerge on this plane.
