LSD is an abbreviation for the following productive interaction principles, applicable for most relationships, especially with regards to parenting and educating children…
- Love (the unconditional compassionate acceptance of individuality, uniqueness and diversity - loving someone for who and what s/he is - mainly derived from “love they neighbour as you would love thyself”),
- Discipline (guidance or teach by example, instruction and practice to strengthen self-control, rules of conduct and to accommodate differences by mainly focusing on similarities).
All healthy personal, professional, educational and/or training interactions - regardless the context - essentially depends on the symbiotic synchronized presence of the L↔S↔D-principles for its success. NOT to punish in order to gain control or enforce obedience (the power of brutality), BUT to compassionately guide and assist (powers of reason & sacrifice) to embrace the future and to develop, enhance or expand personal resources.
The LSD fundamentals is so obvious and effective that we - in general - tend to “ignore” and only focus on it when certain educational issues arise. The essence of LSD is that it is essentially preventative in nature. When an education situation and/or circumstances are threatened by a variety of obstacles, and if a healthy and balanced LSD is not already in place, things often become quite and much more difficult to resolve and restore equilibrium once again.
