Rude Kids and Teens

Kids and teenagers act rude when they feel pressured, controlled and mistrusted.   Adults who have not accepted that they themselves are completely supported, free and trustworthy wish kids and teens would act differently. And it’s considered responsible according to society’s standards for adults to pursue that wish by teaching kids and teens to...

Getting Kids to Behave

I stopped wanting love and respect from my children, because I recognized that what I really want is to experience my children exactly as they are. Once I was willing and eager to purposefully go through every suffering that arose from my experience of raising children, it was also obvious that trying to change...

No Fault

In my view, nobody is ever at fault. That’s why I’m invulnerable to victim mentality and abusiveness in my relationships. I notice that when my mind is not preoccupied with who’s at fault, who might be at fault, or trying to defend myself against fault, I can perceive what’s really coming up to be...

Disrespectful Kids & Teens

When it comes to kids and teenagers, I’ve observed that their disrespectful behavior is a cry for acceptance. Parents are generally conditioned to hold shame for their children when they do things the parent thinks they shouldn’t, and in most parent/child relationships that I’ve observed, the parent doesn’t even recognize that they are holding...

Kids and Respect – Part 2

Kids and Respect – Part 1

As soon as a child is able to exercise natural free will, they are trained by parents, family members, teachers and even random people to “show” respect–to whomever. On the surface that seems innocent, even just, however peeling away the layers of “respect” will reveal its service to the dis-ease of humanity.   Specifically,...

Freedom of Choice

It’s simply insane – the belief that the Child needs discipline, pressure and/or manipulation in order to be deserving of love. What’s really desired for the child is Freedom – the same Freedom our Free Spirit desires for ourselves – but which we are too fearful to allow. Because we do not recognize this...

Loving Children

Children raised in loving acceptance for all of their behavior become grown ups who don’t need to steal, harm, etc…because they feel complete within themselves. This is quite a bit different than refraining from criminal activity because of boundaries imposed by other people, and fear of punishment....

Discipline

When we make other people follow our rules for living, we create suffering for everyone. NoBody, not children, employees, countries, the self etc. deserve to have discipline imposed upon them. Commitment to live the virtues of Love is born out of experimentation, stillness and self reflection. But when people are forced to conform to...
