An Human Sanctuary

I got this from work today. They got it an a parenting class.

This Home is a Human Sanctuary

  • We give non-violent consequences.
  • We encourage each other.
  • Each person is an individual.
  • Everyone is responsible for his/her own success and mess.
  • Everyone is entitled to feel good about her/his own body and to have a safe space.
  • We talk openly about feelings and problems.
  • We don't hit or hurt anyone.
  • We don't put each other down, or call each other names.
  • No one is compared to someone else.
  • No one is rescued from learning the important lessons of life unless they are in danger of harming themselves or others.
  • No one is tricked, forced or trapped into unwanted touching.
  • Big problems are never a secret to be swept under a rug.
I wish I lived in a family where all of these things were done. Wouldn't it be great for everyone in the nation and then in the world to live like this. That would mean no war!
