Co-operation Is a Two-Way Street

Together we can be wiser than any of us can be alone. We need to know how to tap that wisdom.

—Tom Atlee

Co-operation Is Using Power With Your Kids

 Respect Is a Way of Seeing

Parenting takes place in a dynamic exchange among all members of a family. By living authentically in relation to one another, there is a sense of aliveness and joy that we do not have when we aim to teach, preach, or get others to do what we want.

Respect, like co-operation, is often misunderstood and used in a variety of ways. What do you mean when you say you want more respect from your children? Do you want them to be more willing to listen and learn from you? Do you want more understanding for your own circumstances and needs? Is it fewer arguments you want? Would you like your kids to see that your point of view is right? Do you mean you want admiration and high regard from your children? Or, do you want them to do what you say, no questions asked? Perhaps you mean all of the above. With so many different ways of understanding respect, is it any wonder that it is so difficult to ask for and get it? For most parents respect is a catch-all word that implies many thoughts, feelings, and needs.
