LIFESMART Families
 

Because life does not follow your plan!

LIFESMART is a dynamic and flexible approach for families to map their journeys.  LIFESMART parenting is based on the idea that parents cannot follow a predetermined plan for their family.  Every child is unique. Every parent is unique.  Every family situation is unique.  LIFESMART is the ongoing process of starting, modifying, continuing, and expanding family activities and interactions.  The essence of the LIFESMART is the interplay of daily LIFE and SMART projects:

 

Daily LIFE Activities

Daily LIFE activities are habits or routines that

  • L: create conditions for Learning daily

  • I: discover and develop Interests

  • F: enhance Family interactions

  • E: foster Engagement with community

 

Daily LIFE activities are in our comfort zone. We expand and evolve daily LIFE activities gradually over time.

 

SMART Projects

 

Daily LIFE activities develop capacity for SMART projects with well-defined goals:

  • S: Specific

  • M: Measurable

  • A: Attainble

  • R: Relevant

  • T: Time-framed

Aligning daily LIFE activities and SMART projects is the essence of the LIFESMART!  The process of aligning LIFE and SMART is dynamic.  Moments bring information that continuously help us decide on starting, modifying, continuing, and expanding activities.

Chance favors those who invest in their Six Cs

The Six Cs help individuals navigate any learning experience with greater ease and confidence.  The Six Cs are particularly important while making choices in situations where the outcomes are uncertain and/or the path is not clear at the outset.Through conversations learners can acquire information that helps them make better choices.

Access to a network of mentors and peers who encourage and support learners on their journey.

Participating in ongoing conversations. 

Aligning ideas, people, and resources to achieve a goal.

An ongoing process of making decisions under uncertainty.

An ongoing process of developing knowledge and skills.

 

Success is a journey from opportunity to goals.

Parents and children become aware of opportunities and challenges, goals, and their own capacities and resources.  They identify macro-projects that can move them towards their desired future.

What I know

Through a personalized discovery process, families evolve their daily LIFE activities:

L: create conditions for Learning daily

I: discover and develop Interests

F: enhance Family interactions

E: foster Engagement

with community

What I concider

At this stage, action is organized by SMART micro-projects: 

S: Specific

M: Measurable

A: Attainable

R: Relevant

T: Time-framed

What I choose

As choices are refined, families can set clear goals and find ways to achieve these goals capacities.  The Six Cs represent six key LIFESMART capacities:

Connections

Conversations

Clarity

Choice

Competence

Coordination

What I do

Families transform possibilities into reality over time.  Individuals also continually transform their capacities (The Six Cs) and resources. They also support others in achieving 

desired results.

What I get

 

Growth is an activity, not a spectacle!

SHAPING SUCCESS Activities

Modify daily LIFE activities or SMART projects to adjust to changing situations.
