An excerpt from “A Human Design Guide to Parenting” by Ra Uru Hu
Nothing has disturbed me more over the years than to see the relationship between parents and children, where the parents simply do not see the child. They see what they think are symptoms of something that is the matter instead of seeing the normality of the child. Not only seeing it, but to embrace it.
You’ve got all these people in the New Age running around talking about their purpose; give me a break. How are you going to fulfill your purpose when you’re so deeply homogenized, and there is no real differentiation? The first dilemma that we have in parenting is that parents don’t see their differentiated child. And what do you do?
How many children do you now have in America that are on medication? These kinds of prescription drugs are so disorienting and detrimental to the development of these human beings. Many times, it’s simply about seeing their design, it isn’t about anything more profound than that. But, aside from things like Type and Profile and Open Centers, it begins with the consciousness. This is about awareness, and the moment you can clearly see the differentiated potential of your child, how can you not do anything but support that uniqueness, regardless of what the neighbors say?
For me, to be able to bring this knowledge to others is what makes it so magical. That’s what’s magical, that you can transfer the knowledge and awaken your children. We need children to be awakened, they’re going to carry the energy into the future. They’re the ones that are going to have to deal with the great mutation of 2027, who are going to have to live in a world that will be radically different.
The moment you’re able to understand the design of your children, your friend’s children, or your grandchildren, you can give them something very special—the kind of guidance that can enrich the rest of their lives, and will allow them to stay within themselves despite the world around them. This is what it’s all about.

It's an extraordinary thing 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.
The first seven years of life marks the most intense time of conditioning, and the Solar Plexus Center so powerfully defines the nature of our being.
Imagine a world where children grow up appreciated and respected for who they are, feeling secure in themselves instead of learning they should be something other than what they are.
Every Human Design parent wants to raise their children correctly. The great dilemma that faces 9-centered parents is that guiding children is not the same as learning your own design.
