“..ORDER, DISORDER, REORDER..”

HERE WE GO AGAIN...!

So here we go again...lockdown, remote learning, work disruption etc..This will be more than three days...imagine 3 weeks!

We are starting to learn the lesson that nature always has the final say. The order that humans create has to be continually disordered and then reordered!

It is as if nature is repeating the World War II general’s comment:

“If you can’t find the solution, then expand the problem”

What does this lockdown mean for St Pauls?

What lessons did we learn last time?

  1. We learnt that routines in homes and learning structures are essential. Not simply nice to have -but essential.

  2. We learnt that being busy is a start but that is not always learning. That learning device of your son is an enslaver as well as an enabler...limit screen time.
     
  3. We learnt that regular physical exercise for everyone is essential..especially boys. Create a daily routine for physical exercise for the family.
     
  4. We learnt that boys work well with the structures of routine and ritual – on a daily basis....the routines of no devices in the bedroom after a certain time. The routines of five (5) hours learning per day...and being able to prove it! The routines of attending zoom meetings...etc.

  5. We learnt that fear/anxiety is a powerful emotion. Boys are fearful/anxious but will tend to say little. It is their coping DNA.

  6. We learnt that parents are also fearful/anxious and this can show itself through the emotion of blaming...themselves, the other, the Government, the school,..whoever is closest!

  7. We learnt that the messages of connection and community are not false ideas. Personal freedom has its limits.

2020 has been a very unusual year

COVID 19 has tested families, schools and individuals like nothing else. It has made us all very aware that the order we know and seek will become reordered ...ironically through disorder!

In His Peace
