What is Human Design? Human Design is an advanced system that provides incredible insights into a person’s energetic blueprint. It offers a framework for understanding how we are designed to operate, grow and stay connected to our authentic self. Human Design highlights in a very detailed way our individual gifts, strengths, and unique traits giving us strategies and tools in how to express them in the highest vibration. By exploring the different aspects of our Human Design, such as energy types, strategies, authorities, and profiles, you gain a deeper understanding of your child’s natural characteristics, inclinations, and preferences. If you decide to work with this system, you literally have the manual to your child’s inner workings.
Writing Your Own Parenting Rules: When it comes to parenting, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. When we look through the lens of Human Design – we can appreciate that each child and the way they develop is unique, with their own set of energy and emotional needs, desires, and ways of interacting with the world. Human Design encourages parents to honour their child’s individuality and create a personalised parenting style that resonates with their unique design and supports both child and parent.

Discovering your child’s energy type: Starting at the basics, Human Design categorises individuals into five energy types – Manifestor, Generator, Manifesting Generator, Projector, and Reflector. Each energy type has its own strategy for navigating life. Understanding just your child’s energy type can give you enormous amounts of information in helping you tailor your parenting approach to support their natural tendencies. When children are given the opportunity and age-appropriate personal power to stay connected to their blueprint, they grow into emotionally mature and capable young adults with a strong sense of their identity. They are confident in making decisions and often are resilient because they understand that their actions or non-actions lead to consequences.
Connecting Parenting and Human Design: By integrating Human Design principles into your parenting journey, you empower yourself to connect with your child on a deeper level. Embracing their uniqueness and adapting your approach based on their individual design can result in more harmonious parent-child relationships and greater overall family wellbeing. We often throw our own personal conditioning into the mix when parenting our children. This can be authoritarian or permissive – when you choose to look into parenting with Human Design, you choose to start re-writing those generational patterns that are often unhelpful in raising a well-balanced resilient child.
