Creating authentic models of leadership
What children perceive themselves to be, they will become. A child that has been repeatedly placed under strict restraint by a controlling authority begins to put all his energy into defending his true self. As described in Healing Our Children:
"Children controlled by outer authorities seem to be disciplined and behave, but they don't learn any internal discipline. When they find themselves in positions of power they easily become the subjugators and seek to control others for their own personal gain."
The characteristics of a powerless child and a controlling authority are closely related:
- Lack of empathy
- Unwillingness to affirm others' feelings and beliefs
- Blaming others for negative emotions and mistakes
- Lack of empathy
"Children who have role models of healthy authority will become enforcers of goodness and rightness, because that is what they believe in."
The cycle of powerless children turning into controlling authority figures ends when we begin to create an atmosphere of support. When adults strive to understand a child's perception and allow that child the freedom to become motivated internally, they will rarely need outside authority figures to control their behavior.
We need to foster an educational setting where children see themselves as capable, effectual human beings. Also crucial to the nurture of the child is allowing the emergence of self-control and motivation to happen naturally. When control is imposed from without, it hinders the natural functions of a child's brain and spirit to regulate the emotions and behavior
When a child is never allowed to mature in these areas, his behavior remains conditioned on outside forces to regulate his beliefs and actions. This in turn diminishes his feelings as a whole person and numbs his empathy for other people
When children are not subjected to the false authority of school, they are allowed to grow and flourish in their natural environment. They learn consequences from being part of a family and community. When parents are supportive and loving they are able to guide children without imposing outside control. The cycle of "bullied into bully" can only stop when parents seek out authentic relationships with their children.
