How do we help things go right?

The Arbinger Company

I believe the consistent application of the Parent Pyramid can greatly assist me as I seek to establish a happy, joyful, and dynamic family.
The main points that I came away with after studying the Arbinger Company’s article associated with above pyramid is the importance of self-awareness. My wife and I started our day off with lecture in our Religions of the World course. This week we are studying Buddhism. My instructor, Bishop Kinghorn (who served a full-time mission in Thailand), taught us about the 6 Realms of Being. It seems a Buddhist follower places great importance on knowing one-self and then to improve.

“The roots of effective parenthood lie deeper than anything we DO; the roots of effective parenthood life in how we ARE.”

“This is true”, argues the Arbinger Institute, “no matter how sophisticated and intellectually respectable our method happens to be.”

Heavenly Father blessed me with parents “kind and dear”. This was evident to me as my father and mother continually honored their covenants with the Lord; equally sought after a quality marriage relationship; earned my love and friendship as they reared their growing son through teaching and loving correction. In their own way, they put into practice this pyramid-and they did it from the foundation on up!
