  1. Parenting expert Thomas Gordon, a contemporary of Carl Rogers, pointed out a dozen inefficient communication methods that parents use with their children. There are as Follows. Ordering, Warning, Preaching, Lecturing, Judging, Praising, Shaming, Interrupting, Sympathizing, Questioning, Humoring and Advising! Parents modeled these communication methods directly to their children all the time. Personally even though I am a Parenting coach I am guilty of doing several of these every now and then. The results of speaking to children in any of these manners is that… One) The child grows up to become an adult that speaks to others in these ways. Two) These methods (some worse than others) disempower developing minds. These methods create the environment for a “I’m not good enough” self image to mature into strong limiting beliefs that keep us from becoming our best self-concept. As a moderator in PMP I read the various post. I see that many of us are routinely asking for advice. Outside of our group in the world today, I see adults asking google for answers to things they should know. Technology is taking over in good and not so good ways. If we refuse to think for ourselves and routinely rely on advise we remain the child that is disempowered. A disempowered person will not take responsibility for their life. While all of us have entered PMP as a result of receiving valuable information from Kain’s courses, some of us have moved beyond the “receiving advice” mindset and become more proactive by putting that advice and knowledge into practice. Having discussions is a part of the transition from taking what we’ve learned for developing better clarity. Participation in the events moves us into really practicing the knowledge or advice. This step by step process moves us from being powerless or disempowered to becoming empowered. My questions to the group are these. Q) Are you here to get simply get advice? If so how’s that working out for you? And do you feel empowered when people give you advice? Q) Are you ready to move from taking advice to putting it into action and learning from your experience so that one day you might be wise enough to offer advice? Q) How can we move our mindset from advice receivers and break the modeling we learned from our parents?
  2. NOOOOOOvember DRAMA of parenting

     

    5 things we can do to eliminate the unnecessary Drama of the Holiday season!

     

    Most Americans think of Thanksgiving as the iconic event of November. As parents, this time can bring a mix of emotions. Traditionally it’s a time when families come together around a feast and share in the spirit of giving and expressing gratitude for our many blessings. It’s all quite charming, and when everyone is sitting around the table with wide open eyes and growling bellies, we parents relish in the excitement that this event brings. However, the preparation before and the clean up after can be daunting and stressful. As parents what can we do to help eliminate some of the stress?

     

    Parents struggle with stress during the holiday season because we are the ones that create the environments for our children to enjoy. We decorate, organized all sorts of holiday activities, take our children and pay for these events. We shop for outfits, call everyone, cook, bake, handout and CLEAN… For our children, the holiday season is play time. For parents, it's EXTRA work time! This leads to an imbalance in expectations which creates DRAMA! 

     

    Holiday Drama, if you are a seasoned parent, you know exactly what this means. Guilt, of not expressing joy the way you should. Shame for behaving in a “ruining the holidays” kind of way. Depressed from seeing your children less than excited about the season. Worried that the holidays won't be special for them. Expectations Meet Emotions and deliver to us HOLIDAY DRAMA! Then starts the process. Emotions become the director. Family acts out the play, and the show goes on. And this isn’t some reality TV show you can switch off. NOOOOOOOvember DRAMA is your life!

     

    How can we better prepare ourselves for Holiday Drama?

    1. BE AWARE: Use the past to help us see where we can change the routines that aid in making drama worse. And try something better. 
    2. TAKE INVENTORY: Who can help? Get the entire family involved in every area of the holiday season. After all, you are modeling and teaching the life skills of holiday preparation, execution and behavior.
    3. DEMONSTRATE, be a coach during the holidays. Guide them in selecting items for holiday meals. Guide them in baking, cooking, and cleaning. 
    4. PLAN: The adults need to get together and divvy up the chores. You get the ice and pick up the turkey. I ’ll make the sweet potatoes pie and green bean casserole. 
    5. MONITOR THE SUGAR: continued below

     

    NOOOOOOvember actually begins on the 31st of October, Halloween. Children will dress up in costume and charm the neighbors for pounds of sweets. The average child will collect more sugar in one or two hours of trick or treating than what any human should consume in an entire year. November starts off with kids stuffing their faces with what amounts to an agent to activating MORE DRAMA! That’s right! All that candy turns our adorable creatures into “out of control” MONSTERS.  Kids will eat more than a years worth of sugar in just a couple of days. So monitor and slowly dispense the little doses of dynamite in a controlled fashion to keep the highs and lows from impacting the behavior of your children to a minimum. As parents if we monitor and limit our sugar intake we too will experience less spikes and fewer crashes. By doing this, we will have normalized energy levels. If we demonstrate healthy eating habits to our children, they will follow. However, If we eat healthily and feed them sugar and expect them to act normal like us, then we are not being smart! 

     

    When everybody in the family has normal energy levels cooperation is more likely to occur. Help from your child becomes possible! Behavior becomes more positive! The Holiday Drama goes away! And we can say YES to November!

     

    Happy holidays,

    Coach Hall

      I have had the pleasure of working a bit with Donnie and I am amazed by his level of knowledge when it comes to parenting!!  Definitely check out his courses!!

    Parenting Talk

    Hello everyone, I'm Coach Hall and currently I'm hosting a weekly parenting initiative both here in Achology and in the PMP group. That initiative is structured around my course called No Drama Parenting. Those of you interested in knowing WHY people get stuck in life, and how to better understand ourselves and our children well much of that is explained in the course and in our weekly meetings. So if you haven't taken advantage of the free offer there still is time. However beginning in a few weeks the offer will end. Ok now for other news, once the original initiative is over I am looking to begin a new one. The name "Parenting Talk". I know many of you are parents and others of you will have clients that are parents. Some of you may deal with children or may have some issues that linger from childhood. Well, Parenting talk, will be a place where we can cover these current, future and past issues. If you have children and wish to work on strategies, mindsets or develop skills to better your relationships with them or if you have clients that are having parenting issues this is the forum you want to attend. There will be open days where I invite all the members of our community, and some will consist of one to one talk with experts that can offer advice. So stay tuned! And if you are interested in attending or participating in any way please contact me. Have a wonderful weekend! Coach Hall 🖖😎❤️
  6. The relationship equation!

    Being the best parent you can be, begins with being the best person you can be! This is why Achology is the best place to start your parenthood journey. Let’s not forget the big step between being the best version of us and being a great parent. The relationship equation! The bridge between an optimized person and an optimal parent is mastering connection. Co-parents are two individuals prior to being a united front of guidance and influence. A staggering near 1 in 2 marriages end in divorce. The shift in the family dynamic represents a trauma that can damage one’s psyche as much as a limiting belief.  In fact divorce can create a profound limiting belief about how relationships are to be. 

    The question I will ask isn't only for parents. It is for anyone seeking or that is currently in a relationship. Be it romantic, friendship, occupational and/or family.  In what ways are you working towards better relationship development?

      Good sacrifice and delayed gratification.

      I see a culture of instant gratification, fast food, fast fashion, on-demand TV, gaming, dating, booze and other drugs. 

      I also see a culture in which we are sold an endless litany of things we are supposed to have, be it material, how our bodies should look, how our partners should look, accessories and objects. If you fall for this, then you never have enough, you are always in deficit.

      Social media also encourages outrage, it pushes people into making instant judgements based on 240 characters, which in turn fosters an ego centred sense of 'I'm right'. It acts against the pursuit of understanding, of compassion, of the exploration that these qualities demand. 

      If instead, we cultivate a notion of 'good sacrifice' and delayed gratification - that we forgo certain things in order to have better or more worthwhile things, perhaps not now, perhaps not for years, then we start to foster mature people. Good sacrifice willingly gives up other options, bad sacrifice resents what it can't have. 

      In choosing to be in a committed relationship, we are choosing not to have a succession of partners (we sacrifice that experience), we are instead investing in the deep and abiding sense of connection that comes from commitment, from the experience of love that grows and evolves over years if we work on it. 

      If we accept that the worthwhile things in life do not happen instantly and must be striven for, at the expense of other pursuits, then we also experience fulfilment and accomplishment in striving. If we accept others without judgement and allow them to go on their journeys just as we go on ours, then we enjoy fellow travellers rather than people who are not where we want them to be. 

      Ultimately we give up the selfish and serve something greater than ourselves. Through that service we find connection, peace and meaning.

      I appreciate such a well thought out response! Thank you for sharing, and I agree we seem to be trending away from good relationship development because of all the points you made.👍

  7. Hi Donnie!  I have been following your posts on PMP FB page and would love to know more about the course on parenting you are offering. How do I access your course ? Btw I am Suva, a mom of 2 teenagers and run a parenting website www.artofparenteen.com. The  plan is to offer counselling  as a service. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

      Donnie "Coach" Hall

      Thanks Suva, I am happy you are enthusiastic about this initiative. Yes I made it free for Achologist! As far as recording the meetings. I recorded the first couple of meetings and discovered that nobody was watching them. Dozens of people asked me to record, I did, they never watched. Recording, editing, producing and uploading the meetings takes many hours of time which I would find, if people watch. But they don't! Truth is the meetings run 60 to 90 minutes! Most people will not watch videos that long. Also the value of being involved and having your questions asked gets lost and it just becomes something more to watch. The No-Drama Parenting course serves that purpose plus it has workbooks.  Watch the lectures, read the workbooks and if your available join the meetings and or discussion via PMP or Achology.  My goal is to expedite learning. And I wish I had the time to meet everyones request. For the moment I don't have the time to record and publish the meetings. When my schedule loosens up, (spring 2019) I will expand the times I'll host meetings to try to accommodate different time zones. Until then please ask me questions here or in the PMP group. And I'll answer them asap. 

      As an FYI, I am working on plans to do "role plays" and Q&A's that would be recorded and those videos would be shorter in length making them more appealing to watch, easy and faster to produce. My operation is not like Kain's. I am a one-man show for the near future This is all volunteer work and I also have four mouths to feed. So I have to be selective to where I place my time. I hope you understand! Enjoy the course and again if you have questions please contact me here or in PMP! Have a great day!🖖😎❤️

    3. Suva

      Suva

      Hey Donnie, I absolutely understand the pain involved in making videos but you know how human mind works. You get something for free, you want more of it next time 😉. Really appreciate the time and effort you must have spent in developing the  course.  I am planning to start your course from tomorrow and promise to share my feedback really really soon.

      Take care and have a fun day!

    4. Donnie "Coach" Hall

      Donnie "Coach" Hall

      Thank you @Suva,

      Yes the No Drama Parenting course took me about 7 months to complete. And I'm giving it away for free to my Achology brothers and sisters. Plus I'm giving away free time for the Tuesday Meetings for those that can attend. I agree with the modern accepted concept that give it away turns into many wanting more. My business background was advertising and marketing before going full-time into coaching. Also true is something given for free has the value equal to what is paid. Free equals Nothing! Do you know how many free items I've collected in my life? The cast majority quickly forgotten. But those things that cost me time and hard earned money, I use, I value! 

      I'm on a mission to help the world. But if I give away courses and videos that nobody values or won't look at because other things paid for are perceived to have greater value therefor the information I offer gets pushed further down the cue of importance, I'm wasting my time! I frankly don't have time to waste. People either want to be better parents and provide an optimal upbringing for their children or they don't! Those that don't I have no time for! We have a world full of them and that is why we have the majority of the problems we have today. 

      I do not offer my course for free outside of PMP or Achology, why? Because the members have paid for Kain's courses. I have no stake in that, we are not business partners but none-the-less, what Kain is doing is changing the world. I want to support that because our vision is aligned.  So since I see commitment from many of the PMP community the rules about giving away something and having it be perceived as valueless aren't yet as cut and dry. So I am inclined to give here where in other arenas I would not because of what I've stated before. 

      Sorry that this went long. Please don't take it personal, it wasn't meant that way. The topic has been hot as of late and I saw the opportunity to clear the air on the pros and cons of giving away my course and starting the Parenting initiative here in Achology. 

      Thank you again and I hope you enjoy the course. Please feel free to ask me anything you want about it as you take it. Also next year once my schedule clears up, I plan on making myself available for more time zones, perhaps at that point you could join us live. Have a splendid day!🖖😎❤️      

  8. Every Child is a Star!

    My mission is to help parents understand the process of parenting and give them the tools they need to become the best parents possible not only for their sake but more for the positive impact it will have on their children. 

    We take a tiny human that is helpless and utterly dependent on a journey that we hope will end with them becoming sustainably independent with the ability to thrive in life. However, most parents haven’t considered this as a practical purpose nor are they adequately prepared to take their child on that journey. Most parents will raise their child according to the way their parents raised them, or based on social norms, or reject these teachings and parent in a diametrically oppositional manner. Parents look at behavior and judge it as good or bad, never really considering that a child’s behavior is a result of a process of the human mind. Even fewer understand that the human mind goes through stages of development that makes relating to conduct a quagmire. In essence, humans change into virtually five or more different people over their lifetime. Four of which parents will witness with their children. A baby becomes the toddler that grows a school-aged child that becomes the teenager that constructs an adult. We are looking at experiencing four gateways or transitions, four different levels of mental and emotional capability, four different cognitive focal points, four different levels of understanding. 

    To complicate matters parents with their ability to “see or prepare for the future” tend to be Outcome-oriented. We look at growth charts to project and measure for comparison purposes. We look at academic grades, to tell us how smart they are. We look at statistics to tell us how well our child performs in sports. We ask the babysitter, “How well did my child behave?” We look at behavior. 

    Behavior is an outcome! It’s an outcome that is preceded by several factors and a couple of steps that we don’t scrutinize as much as we do behavior. We don’t look at what is going inside the mind of our child as much as we do their behavior. We let them watch hours of T.V. shows that provided inputs that will be processed and likely modeled, and we will only begin to examine some of these programs when we don’t approve of their behavior. Beyond that, parents, people, in general, are clueless as to how to mind processes information and converts inputs into behavior. It is the mind that is the operator that directs OUTPUTS or in other words how we create belief, opinions, remember events stored in memory, act, and feel. 

    Since people, in general, don’t understand how the mind works, how can we expect them to teach this to their children? Since they don’t explain the process and seldom look at the inputs, the only observation left is to look at behavior. 

    To correct a child's behavior, a parent will exercise one of the following options.

    • One, do nothing, let children be children. They will figure it out or so we believe.
    • Two, remove all obstacles, so our children will have less to stress about which creates fewer behavior issues or so we believe.
    • Three, reject certain behaviors, through varied methods. Ignore them all together as punishment, scold them or strike them that will correct the behavior or so we believe.
    • Four, relating to them on their level and guiding them via the understanding of their mindset or so scientifically proven to be most effective.

    The first three methods are outcome focused. The fourth method is process focused. When we focus on the process and optimize that process the outcome we desire becomes a sustainable behavior with lasting permanence. 

    Imagine a world of parents that no longer are reactive, and outcome focused but are responsive, and process focused. Imagine if by merely parenting this way and later teaching children how the mind works and why behavior is controllable via understanding the process, what childhood humans would have. 

    We would have fewer cases of diabetes, obesity, teenage pregnancy, suicide, depression, anxiety, phobias, quitters, delinquency, bullying, gang-related violence, rage and a new generation of humans that didn’t need psychological therapy, counseling, life coaching, self-help, etc.… Nearly all people would know and operate by their core values. Humans could progress at a pace that might mirror technology, finally! 

    Every Child is a Star! They are a pure vessel of energy born in a program of hope. With the right environment, that child can grow up to be as bright, warm and needed as the Sun that gives us life. In the wrong setting, the star blinks and fades away to get lost into the blur of dust in the midnight sky. 

    At some point, we must stop the ignorant cycle of ordinary aka “behavior focused” parenting. Otherwise, our children will grow up to be no better off than we were in dealing with life. A life that seemingly creates a feeling of confusion, worry, stress, anxiety, disappointment, and depression. How can we teach a child to succeed in life if we have not yet mastered it ourselves?  

    Star Family Coaching gives you the tools to become process focused. The means to understand how to effectively communicate with your child at every stage of their development. Come join me so I can share with you a lifetime of implements that will not only help your relationship with your every changing and developing child but in addition, receive comprehensive relational understanding that will create better bonds with your spouse, your friends and anyone you come across in life. 

    Be the best version of you and have the tools to teach your child to become the best version of them as well. Help me change the world one family at a time!🖖😎❤️

      What a powerful and amazing analysis of parenting today and description of how we as parents need to address it!!

      I have to admit I am guilty of all of the above and I thought I was an evolved parent... lot's of awareness and education needed in my future!  

      Thanks Donnie for sharing that!!  Your insights are amazing and the world is SO lucky to have you!  Us parents are SO lucky you have devoted so much of your life to be able to learn all of this and lead us!! I am truly inspired!

  11. What is your awareness level?

    Birds and crickets sing, flowers and trees fill the sky with scent, sunlight bounces and dances off branches through the green wooded canopy and dazzle the vision of my daily path. No notification beeps, No stale air-conditioned air, No radiating light blasting through my optic nerves creating irritation. I’m free and alive each morning as I unplug and great back to nature. My morning five kilometer run is my religion, it’s my food without it my spirit feels empty, my energy low. So just like I have to pee when I wake up I have to do my 5k. Along the path, I meet friends that do as I do and take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life. We smile often stopping to warn one another of those that invade our peacefully stroll with high speed (touring) bicycles. Yes, each morning, the mothers with jogging strollers, the eighty plus-year-old retirees, couples sharing in the tree bathing experience as well as folks like myself taking in nature without stress, we all get jolted by these bikers that assume that this winding trailing is their private race track. 

    Many people these days walk or jog alone with earbuds, listening to music or following an exercise app to assist them in their morning run. The number of people I see wearing these devices has increased over the years. So the problem is that when these bikers, that usually travel in sizable groups ranging from four to dozens come flying around the bend from your rear, the earbud-wearing jogger cannot hear, “on your LEFT” and will not move over to allow for the peloton to flash by. This is a recipe for disaster! Another reality is that most of these bikers are so focused on what they are doing that they don’t apply proper etiquette, or they don’t know the social rules of shared pathways. They just act as if everyone is supposed to get out of there way so they can ride as swiftly as they care. 

    Awareness, it is something both internal and external. While many of us struggle with inner awareness and are just learning about NLP, CBT, Mindfulness, etc.…There seems to be a real struggle with external awareness as well. The bikers versus pedestrian example I gave above is a daily happening. Despite the multitude of signs along the path that remind bikers to slow down and that people have the right of way, the teams of bikers race in, nonetheless. What is their level of awareness?  Are they moving so fast that they can’t see the signs? Do they look at the signs and imagine it doesn’t apply to them? Are they merely defying the warnings because they don’t care enough to consider the feelings or experience they impose upon those they shock each day?

    If we are to become better at being aware of what is happening internally with our thoughts, doesn’t it make sense to practice being aware externally as well? When we are aware of the rules, the nature of people and the impact our actions have on others, we are practicing using the upper levels of our mind. Something I like to call the Cognition Tower where the ground floor is restricts awareness to an egocentric subjective perspective and higher levels where we can see further with more relative and objective perspectives. The lower levels or what I refer to as the Childhood division of the Cognition tower is awareness challenged. Driven by sensations and emotions where judgement and decisions are governed by feelings rather that critical thinking. For the biker is rush of danger, sensation of speed in tight proximity with others speeding along, the safety of belonging and riding with your tribe all fit nicely into a packaged way of experiencing life. While exhilarating for them it is often terrorizing for those that are merely blurred obstacles to be navigated around. They are aware on some level. The level that satisfies their ego and tribal requirements. However, this is where awareness ends or this is the limit to which they care for other people. Either way having limited awareness creates problems.

    Are you aware of what level you are experiencing life from? Are you aware of how much time you spend on each perspective level? Are you aware of your internal mindset? How much time are you paying attention to your environment? Those surroundings? The feelings of others? The whistle of the breeze that sings through the leaves, the refractive and reflective light that turns an ordinary path into nirvana? 

    What is your awareness level?
