Parents With Purpose
· Set priorities on outside activities. Many organizations will continue to thrive even without your continued assistance. Carefully select and limit the activities so you can keep your focus on achieving the goal for your child---as a family.
· Spend time having fun as a family each week. Be sure to include time for spirituality each week also.
· Be positive about the goals and programs to accomplish those goals. Be as creative as possible to make your programs fun from your child’s point of view.
· Be consistent. Consistency equals results. Commit to work five days per week consistently. Again, consistency equals results. Results are what you are after, so consistency is the price to be paid.
· Take care of yourself---exercise and nutrition will make you better prepared for your day. You will have more energy for your daily tasks. You will also be setting an example worthy of emulation for your family.
· Join the online forum and connect with other families who are participating in a program with their child. To join the forum, you must register and your membership must be approved (to avoid spam and pornography). Once your membership is approved, post an introduction and enjoy the fellowship of other parents.
· Read the Nutrition page and implement those suggestions.
· Filter your water and air. See article here Link to Bruce Colbert’s article
· Expect overnight cures. Brain development is a marathon, not a sprint. You need to be committed for however long it takes. Each child is different and there is no exact recipe for how long.
· Let others distract you or discourage from your goal. Friends are family members may be well-meaning in the comments and questions, but they can be less-than helpful. Don’t be derailed. Make sure you spend your energy on helping your precious child, not trying to please others.
· Get overwhelmed by such a formidable foe. It is true that you are batting the last frontier---stimulation for the brain. It is a big job. But you are not doing the whole job today. Only do today’s job today. You can do this one day at a time.
· Forget your goal. While you cannot do the whole job in one day, it is motivating to keep your focus on the goal for your child. Whatever the goal is, keep it written and where you can see it.
· Neglect the immediate family relationships. You cannot focus exclusively on one child and expect the family to stay intact. Don’t exclude your immediate family from helping with your goals.
