Parent Footprint’s guiding principle is that raising healthy children starts with a parent’s self examination of their experiences and beliefs that influence their parenting, and that helping children reach their potential begins with a parent aspiration to reach their own. A child’s happiness and joy starts with parents understanding of themselves. When we know who we are, we can help our children understand who they are and these concepts are the foundation of Parent Footprint’s Core Values:
- Acceptance – We need to accept who we are now in order to reach our potential. By accepting ourselves, we are better able to accept our children for who they are. Growth starts with acceptance.
- Compassion – We must be compassionate towards ourselves first, before we can be compassionate with our children. Compassion allows for understanding of oneself and others. With compassion comes the opportunity for acceptance and growth.
- Love – Love is the essential ingredient for acceptance and compassion. We must be able to love ourselves if we are to show love to our children. By being able to receive and show love, our children learn to receive and show love. Children must feel loved to have the opportunity to love themselves.
- Respect – We must show respect for our children as individual human beings for them to show respect to others. Respect allows our children to be open to parental guidance rather than resist and defending against feeling devalued.
