Parenting Protocol – Love, Guide, Let Go (Download)

Love, guide, let go
Parenting… it’s a journey we walk from the first moment we meet our children to the moment we die. AND… even after we are gone, our parenting legacy lives on through our children. At first, we begin this journey, often experimenting with different styles to find our way. Sometimes, we stumble, we fumble, we slip and trip, we do it imperfectly. We have the best of intentions. But… wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a step-by-step Parenting Protocol that allowed us to create the parent/child relationship of our dreams? The Option Institute’s Parenting Protocol will show you how.
- Parent by intention. Know your intention in each parenting moment and move toward what you want, with a laser-sharp focus. Gain tools to create consistency in your parenting that will pave a clear path for your child/children to follow.
- Be the CEO (without apology or regret). Learn to take ownership. As the parent, you want to be easy and open and be able to instruct as well as “negotiate” so your child feels acknowledged. At the same time, you, as the parent, also sets the standards of behavior (as CEO). Even if your child protests that does not negate your vision or authority.
- Model what you want. What we do (how we behave as parents) is what we teach. Our children look to us as role models of how to be in the world. Learn to be an active demonstration of how you would like them to be (loving, thoughtful, respectful, kind and communicative).
- Love first, act second. Learn simple principles of how to express love and let go of expectations so you can enjoy the child that is currently in front of you.
- Give only what you want. Often as parents, we act from what we believe are our obligations. Indeed, we have accepted the guardianship and deep caring for our children. Receive guidance about the difference between performing from obligation and acts of giving from love. Learn to inspire your children to sincerely feel and express gratitude.
- Be authentic: This is the key to closeness and trust. We will show you how to be open about yourself, acknowledge your imperfections and for your children to be open with you.
- Make happiness (not unhappiness…) the motivator. Discover how our children’s unhappiness does not need to negate our vision as a parent. We do not have to save our children from their unhappiness (although, most of us, believe that is one of our essential roles). Learn a new way to foster happiness as a motivator and extinguish support for our children that could actually encourage unhappiness as an expression and motivator for them to get what they want.

“Before learning the parenting protocol, I felt unsure, guilty and responsible in a lot of areas when it came to being a Mom. Now I feel clear about what I want to teach my boys and how I want to be with them – how I’m going to ‘show up’ daily as a Mom… just knowing what I do for them is truly ‘all for me’ lifts the guilt and obligation off of me.”
— Jackie Griffin, Voice Teacher, HI
“Having learned a lot during my time in the playroom with my special child, I was still missing some pieces of my puzzle. The Parenting Protocol helped me tremendously in putting those pieces in place, and left me well prepared to become an even better Mom. I know exactly what I want and have a set of guidelines to follow that will help me get there. I highly recommend this to any person who has children on works with them.”
— Rita Mari, Son-Rise Mom, MI
“I came confused, frightened with a fuzzy sense of the future and I am leaving confident that the Parenting Protocol will help my son become a happy teenager and human being.”
— Nadia D’Parashi-Tigo, Civil Engineer, CA
“This is the Parenting Protocol I have literally been hoping I would have for the past 26 years! Although my children are now 26 and 15 years of age, I wanted tools and new ways of thinking to relate to my children on a daily basis, tools that work equally well in small situations as well as in a crisis. Here are the many tools I wanted and have begun to work on and apply to my own inner work to be a more effective, more respectful, more loving and happier parent.”
—Erika Bro, Mentor/Life Coach, NJ
“I am a loving parent with the best of intentions and yet, now that I have gone through the Parenting Protocol, I have conviction to effectively relate to my children and create the strong bond of love I always wanted.”
— Marcus Nazar, Programmer/Actor, NC
“As a result of the Parenting Protocol, I now have the inspiration, guiding principles and tools to raise my child in a positive way, so that he can learn to live the life the ways he wants to – not the way I want him to. I now know how to give him the opportunity to find his own way, and I will love him no matter the outcome.”
— Rick Lord, Sales, CA
“I would recommend the Parenting Protocol to any Mom, Dad, Grandparent (or even teacher,) who wants to be a more effective and loving as a parent or grandparent. This amazing protocol goes through the basics of parenting starting with the very important concept of the attitude of the parents. As a Mother of three boys, I believe that utilizing these ideas will result in happier, freer children and a happier, freer me.”
— Isis Maria Cohen, Counsellor
“The Parenting Protocol was amazing! The idea that I can move easily among my children by using simple principles and beliefs was eye-opening. I’m excited to see what happens.”
— Bronwyn Huffard, Mother, NY
“I wanted to change some of my approaches to parenting, but I didn’t have a positive and convincing model of how to do it. In the Parenting Protocol I learned an alternative to my old ways and an option that helps me substitute my old, not really working ways with the new ones. I was offered in a simple, clear, easy to use method.”
— Svetlana Luzgina, Marketing Rep, NJ
“I thought I was learning a program that would give me skills to help my children become successful in their lives. What I didn’t realize was that this would end up as the start of a journey into my soul… my wants, my feelings, seeing opportunities to grow and knowing that I can choose happiness no matter what.”
— Anitha Nair, Wife and Mom, CA
