In this class, Nicholeen says that when you have an “Urgency Addiction,” it means that you try to make everything so urgent by being so efficient, that you stop being effective.
This class teaches parents how to create habits of effective communication at home instead of being trapped in efficiency.
After Nicholeen presented this class, TSG student Pennie wrote this to Nicholeen:
“The day after I asked this question on the Support Group, I was thinking about what you said about being so efficient that I stop being effective. I realized that sometimes I get out of control and start to order what I think are ‘instructions’ at my children. The very reason why I start ordering is because I am trying to be SO efficient. The truth is that my mission and my life means nothing if I am not effective in showing my children how to love, how to speak lovingly by being calm, and how to follow the principles of Self-Government.
…There is something truly providential in my learning path that happens while being immersed in the TSG environment. It’s like I work my hardest to be assertive, but sometimes some changes still happen after time through grace. It does take time, but I am living proof that they do happen. Thank you so much for teaching me the power of calmness. You have changed my life and saved my family from divorce.”
