On Parenting and the Importance of Teaching Values: Suggestions for Living Easy (er)ish[ly]… Bunny Style

So, How is it that Bunnies seem to Be such Happy, Gentle Creatures?

Well, in our very first Bunny Blog post we discussed Random Acts of Kindness and how they can be used not only too teach values, but also to help promote wellbeing while spreading kindness the world over. The post received so many favorable comments that we thought it might be important to expand on this essential Bunny theme.

Bunny Reading

If you have read our Easter Story for Children, The Bunny in the Bush, you will know that one’s behavior and the way one treats others is very important not only for one’s own wellbeing, but also for the wellbeing of the entire community.

Moreover, although it’s okay not to get everything right all of the time, what is important is that you are kind and that you try with all your might.

And so, in this post we would like to go over a few more of our favorite Bunny suggestions that Human parents might find helpful as they get ready to face the many parenting challenges that are sure to come.

Now, because Bunny culture is so rich in principles that help promote happy, healthy Bunny attitudes, here we will highlight just a few of the suggestions that we find to be critical in laying the groundwork for success. And then, we can invite you to either respond or to leave some of your own suggestions about what has been helpful in your own experience in the comments down below.

[This, by the way, is a subtle technique that often works nicely in verbal formats as well. By inviting others into the conversation, one invariably encourages collaborative learning which, interestingly, often results in the need to broaden one’s world view and thereby, encourages the application of Bunny values such as acceptance and respect.]

Bunny Scouts

First, and of primary importance in establishing a healthy culture throughout the entirety of Bunnydom, we have two key suggestions by which all Bunnies live. If all Bunnies practice these two essential principles, we find that very little can possibly go wrong.

These two principles are Do The Next Right Thing and Just Be Kind.

In twitter lingo that would be #dothenextrightthing and #justbekind. Some of our other favorite hashtags BTW are #bunnies4kindness and #eatmorecarrots…

In Humans, however, we tend to see the construction of a fair amount of grey area around the meaning of any suggestion in general, and Do The Next Right Thing in particular. Humans ask questions like “For whom shall I do The Next Right Thing?” and “Who says The Next Right Thing for me is going to be the same for me as it is for you…” See, Humans like to tease these things apart, argue around them and otherwise create mayhem.

Alternatively, we find that, in Bunnies, there seems to be an inherent and generally consistent sense of rightness and wrongness. Typically, any confusion that may arise can be easily resolved by asking a few very simple questions, questions like “is it Thoughtful”, “is it Helpful”, “ is it Inspiring”, “is it Necessary”, “is it Kind”.

Now, if you are clever, you might have noticed that several of the letters in the previous sentence were, in fact, Capital Letters. And so here is a quick Bunny challenge for you. Can those same letters be put together to make a word?

Great! Yes! They can! And that word is THINK. Just stop and THINK! It’s an easy tool to use when trying to make decisions about the rightness or wrongness of a Thing and if, in fact, one should proceed!

Now, the one other suggestion that is of the upmost importance in any successful path to Living Easy (er)ish[ly]… Bunny Style was alluded to in the second paragraph of this post. But I am not entirely sure all of you caught it. This suggestion is normally stated as It’s OK, or Easy Does It, or Take It Easy.

 

Bunny HugYou see it is imperative to establish at as young an age as possible that It Is OK. Everything is ok. We are ok. You are ok. Everybunny is ok. Some things come quickly. Some things come slowly. What comes easily to you, might not come easily to somebunny else. And what is easy for somebunny else, might not ever be easy for you. And that this is OK.

This is essential in that it precludes any sense of judgement or impending doom. Humans seem to be big on using judgement and shame as motivators. Bunnies, on the other hand, find these tendencies to be less helpful in the development of happy, productive Bunnies.

All of these suggestions then act together to establish indispensable underlying precepts such as positive self image, willingness and acceptance that will be critical in learning whobunny one is and whobunny someone else maybe. See, nobunny gets everything right all of the time. And nobunny has to. What is important is that mostly we smile, that everybunny try their best to be kind and that everybunny endeavor to do the next right thing.

Once a Bunny knows that it is, in fact, ok to be whobunny they are, and that nobunny does everything properly all of the time, the Bunny is then free to grow and develop in its own way, at its own rate and into its own best self.

Once you have these suggestions down, you can begin to discuss other values and positive character traits such as self activation, courage, risk taking, and even humor… That’s how the Bunnies do it. And it works like a charm!

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there a means you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

    • Scout, Bunny Posted June 2, 2017 3:46 pm

      oh goodness… i will look and see what i can figure!

    • Scout, Bunny Posted June 3, 2017 12:25 am

      Hi. I am not finding a place to un-notify you. However, I found this:

      We also get asked about New comment notification from other sites. That happens because the site you commented on is using a plugin like “Subscribe to Comments“. You probably checked or forgot to uncheck the box. Most of those emails have an unsubscribe link. You should be able to unsubscribe fairly easily.

      perhaps you can find a place to unsubscribe? Let me know if this does not work and I will have to have someone else figure it out for us!
      Bests, Scout
