Mother's Day - Humanistic Parenting

  1. 1. What my mother taught me about being human A Lesson in Humanistic Parenting For Mother’s Day by Jennifer Hancock, Humanist
  2. 2. Honesty is the best policy You can’t fix problems unless you acknowledge the problem exists! It takes more energy to lie and it makes things worse. I couldn’t fool her anyway. Plus … it’s just plain rude to lie.
  3. 3. I wouldn’t do that. But what do I know. You are free to do whatever you want. But with that freedom comes responsibility. If you do something stupid, you will have no one to blame but yourself.
  4. 4. Help others - Volunteer Good people help others. It’s just what you do. Volunteering your time fills your life with meaning and purpose and amazing experiences.
  5. 5. It takes two to fight Be responsible for your part of any disagreement. You can’t control the other person, but you can control yourself. So get off your high horse and apologize.
  6. 6. Insecurity is normal We all have our moments. We all have our quirks. My mom’s quirks make her unique and awesome! People love you because of your flaws, not despite your flaws. So take a deep breathe, yawn and go on.
  7. 7. It’s worth the effort Being a mom is hard. It’s scary and exciting and exhausting and you are constantly screwing up. You never stop worrying. It’s worth it!
  8. 8. By Jennifer Hancock On behalf of Humanist Learning Systems Thank you mom, for helping me to become the person and the mom I am today! I learned from the best.
