Finding Hidden Design



Description

Imagine parenting without knowing the redemptive gifts of your kids! Seems unthinkable these days. So many wise decisions stem from our knowing how they are wired.

But there is so much more. There is an abundance of clues about nuances in design in daily life that you have to interpret. Is this a design issue, a wound, lack of character or social pressure?

Getting the answer right, changes your response to the behavior in question.

This is not a class in right parenting. It is a class in right diagnosis.

To qualify for the class you must:

  • Be able to follow directions;
  • Have two or more kids between the ages of 5 and 15;
  • Enjoy following clues to decode a mystery.

We will flow with each family’s actual dynamics. You will float a behavior that is disruptive – such as being a tattle tale, a procrastinator, a bully – or one that is intriguing – a climber, a clothes hound, a dreamer.

I will provide you with a grid you can use for drilling down to design. In some cases, it will not be design. We will make a suggestion or two as to what the parents can do to deal with a wound or character issue or critter, but not dwell on it.

The objective is for each parent to master the skill of drilling down to design, so you have the ability to rescue the treasure from beneath the problematic behavior.

Again, the objective is NOT to fix your kids. The objective is to equip you parents to reason from behavior – good or bad – to design.



This course is currently in session.  It will be listed in the Course Catalog when it is available for registration.

Bio

Arthur has fielded literally thousands of questions about the behavior of children, adults, spouses, bosses, business and churches.

In many cases, the cause of the questionable behavior was wounds, lack of character or critters.

And also in many, it was design that was poorly expressed. Understanding design paved the way for a superior resolution of the relationship.

Out of this huge pool of experiences came skill in asking the right questions to find the root issue.

Course Prerequisites
The prerequisites for this course are listed below.

[NON-Optional Preparation]

  • Skill in using Signal. We will be using the audio group call feature. You will be given the phone number after registration is approved.
  • “Developing Discernment” from the SLG store. You must have listened to it within a month of the course starting, so it is fresh in your mind.

[Optional Preparation]
Get “Deliverance for Children” and play it at night for a couple of weeks. We are not planning on any deliverance, but dusting off your kids is a good preparation for seeing their true design.
