The purpose of the 23-Tips of the SELF-PARENTING Program is to make sure that you, as the Inner Parent, learn the “mildly strict” procedures of the Self-Parenting sessions. Once these initial guidelines have become a habit, they will not seem strict at all, but what they are — a set of positive protocols that differentiate your Inner Parent and Inner Child within your sessions.
Time and time again I find that when your sessions “aren’t going right” it is because you, as the IP, are violating one or more of the 23-Tips. They are here for your Inner Child’s protection and safety. If you don’t follow them as an Inner Parent, your IC will know long before you do. In fact, your IC is paying way more attention to how well you are following these tips than you might realize.

So follow them; they absolutely represent “best practice” and they are the basis for all Intermediate and Advanced S/P work. Good habits established early will pay big dividends for your future as a Self-Parenting Practitioner. Here they are:
After the first two weeks, if you are still unsure about starting to ask your own questions you may repeat the questions from the “yellow book” SELF-PARENTING: The Complete Guide To Your Inner Conversations, over again. If you do this, it is totally normal to get different answers to the same questions. You can also repeat sections of any module and you will get different answers to the same questions. However, don’t repeat the book questions more than twice. If you are having problems with questions, get the P/Q or S/E module. That’s why they were written.
When you follow these 23-Tips, you will be well-rewarded for being an excellent Inner Parent by having a happy and motivated Inner Child. My most precious goal for this work is for you to become an outstanding Inner Parent, so your Inner Child can finally become free to be who and what it’s always been – AWESOME!
