Here is a timely video full of wisdom on the topic of raising children using The Village Method. Specifically Dr. Kunjufu lays out the order in which raising children used to be done. Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu Video on The Village Method. I encourage you to watch the entire series of videos #1-6. I’ve included video #2 here:
The “method” Dr. Kunjufu describes is outlined in five layers.
- The Lord
- The Village
- Common Sense
- The Belt (yes… you know what he’s referring to)
- A Home-Cooked Meal
I watched this video series as I sat outside watching my son play with the neighborhood kids in our community complex and thought: If I don’t treat my son’s friends as my own children, I don’t have the right to look at them when they become young adults and judge any bad choices some might make. The Village Method of raising children and communities starts at home with the values we instill in our children and then moves outward to how we value those we see daily in our communities.
How can we expect our communities and children to reach their full potential without the village?
