Is it possible to raise a child without imposing laws and rules on them and they still achieve their path and highest good for this lifetime as well as those they interact with?
Yes this is possible. It is through teaching that this can be done. You cannot simply leave a child with no rules and no structure, but at the same time we do not mean that their time must be structured. To have no rules placed on them by others means that they are given the opportunity to learn the reason and cause and the implications of their actions. Not all children will learn this at the same time or by the same method. For those that doubt, simply understand that you awoke this morning and did not murder someone. Did you not murder someone because it is a law? Did you not murder someone because of how it would impact the person and the other people in their life and possibly even you? There are many things that can be learned and understood with teaching that are often given no further explanation other than, “it is wrong,” “it is bad,” “it is illegal.” To educate more deeply on these lessons will help those coming up through life no matter their progress and evolution.
To simply take rules off of a child who has had so many applied to them will at first cause turmoil. For those that feel this cannot be done, or who have tried and believe they have failed, you may have a difficult child, yes this is true. Why are they difficult? Are you teaching them or have you left them to their own devices? A path is chosen prior to arriving here and many obstacles and challenges, but that does not mean that it cannot be altered and therefore should not be blamed immediately for action or inaction or the behavior of a child or parent or the parent/child relationship.
Known to all is a method of understanding. With all things it requires patience. You cannot begin reading the dictionary and encyclopedia at age one because you do not comprehend complex sentences and areas and reading. You must start fundamentally and then build on to current knowledge.
Free will is often best expressed as art because so much of your free will feels hampered by rules, laws, and the impressions of others and you worry of your acceptance. These are all rules and laws because most in the human form follow them all equally. To form your own impression is much more useful and beneficial than using the form and thought that has been created by someone else. Do not force your will onto others no matter if they are in your care or you in there’s. It is important to understand, and the evidence is readily avaiable on your plane, that imposing your will or your beliefs is not accepted in all cases of growing children. They will change and follow their own path of their own accord. Some may take life times to accomplish, some may venture out and form their own opinions once they are out from the shelter in which they were originally raised.
All can be accomplished when learning is allowed to take place. It is imperative to not pass judgment. It is important to allow the fruit of their true nature to manifest. True correction of behavior or the ability to follow their own highest path is only accepted when they are ready. Give opportunities to learn and create learning, do not hinder it and do not resist permitting the child to know other beliefs or other experiences in life because you are fearful of the experience or because the belief or idea, or the science or any other thing, or any other aspect, is in conflict with your beliefs. It is important for the child, and for anyone, to arrive at conclusions on their own. They may ask for guidance, they may ask opinions, and while they factor that into their decision, it is still truly for them to make this decision on their own. They will not be happy, no decision maker is happy and benefits, until they arrive at a conclusion on their own. Though it does not mean that any decision is final and free from revision.
