The Secret Teaching of Parenting

Parenting takes on a whole new meaning when we have the proper context. The question is will we parents surrender?


I made this video after a hard night of sleep (and prior to that, weeks of sleep deprivation). Par for the course for us new parents.

    Thanks for this Jayson,

    It is said that being in relationship with another is the most difficult/growthful (? is that a word?) experience there is. I agree with your view on the soul agreements and the lesson we are here to learn. I have noticed negative patterns arise with my son that I had with my father, which were probably passed down through the generations. I see my job as breaking the cycle of negative reactions/behaviors and modeling more productive and healthy responses to living with others. I haven’t been successful every time in demonstrating ideal responses, but at least I have moved us closer towards the healthy and loving end of the spectrum. Maybe when my son becomes a father, he can also consciously improve the cycle for our descendants and the world.
