Parenting based on Prosperity Prinicples

ThoughtsAlive is all about learning to operate under correct principles… Standards of conduct that help us position ourselves to receive all the prosperity in finances, relationships, and personal development that God and His Universe has to offer.

When we discover PRINCIPLES, we know for certain that to live by them will consistently and dependably yield the best outcome possible. To build prosperity on principles, we know that the results are all that they can possibly be.

By the same token, there are principles of right parenting. What do you do when you are faced with a parenting dilemma? If you understand the principles of right parenting, then you’ll know what to do. It will take different forms throughout a child’s life, but if the parent operates on a true principle, they can be sure they’ve done the right thing, and that the outcome will be the best that it
can be. Many parents operate on ‘principle’ but if it isn’t the right principle, their efforts will ultimately backfire on them.

What’s the benefit of knowing and operating on true principles? Peace of mind. Just think about what that’s worth in this day and age! Children will make their own choices, and well they should. But as a parent, we have a responsibility to guide them and help them understand the connection between their choices and the consequence of those choices, good or bad. It is our job to teach them accountability to something bigger than us, so that when we’re not there, they are equipped to make good choices even if nobody is watching.

Too often, parents spend all their energy teaching right and wrong, hoping that a child will choose the right when they aren’t around. However, there is a piece missing here… and you have the opportunity to discover that missing piece in September.

I am not a perfect parent, but I have discovered a beautifully simple approach to teaching accountability. My friends Matt and Julie Reichmann have shown me a system – a mindset – for accomplishing this important parenting task that seems to encompass all the problems in parenting that I’ve personally faced, and provides a simple, no nonsense approach that works like magic.

It is patterned after the way that God seems to deal with His children, and it is brought together into an easy to understand form… a bird’s eye view of what parenting is for, and how to do it effectively. Then, when you are caught off guard and don’t really know what to do, you’ll remember the principles, and be able to proceed with confidence that you’re doing the right thing.

It’s been about 3 years since I went through the program, and I’ve seen how it has helped my children set and achieve goals, and also helped them know that they don’t have to be perfect to be acceptable.

Now, I’d personally like a refresher. With another baby on the way, I want to make sure these principles are my well-established habits before she arrives, so that our family life runs as smoothly as possible during my recovery. For this
selfish reason I called up the Reichmanns and asked what it would take to have them come out to Arizona and present the program for my friends in the area, and anyone else who is compelled to fly in for it.

Matt is a busy guy. He works in law enforcement in Southern California (and boy, does he have some stories to tell!), but has agreed to take some of his time to put this together as a teleconference.

Put some peace and order into your family life, and join me while I also become a participant in this program.
