What is great about Transactional analysis is that it embraces a positive view of human nature, Grown Azz kids base our philosophy on it’s principals such as:
- All people are important and their concerns are valid.

It allows us to free ourselves from maladaptive patterns of behavior based on past thinking which hindered productive growth and allows us to choose a new direction in life.

To create a good healthly environment it takes a corporation of the surrounding community inward and outward. This is truly the definition of a production. When people come together to do anything it is a production once people understand it from that perspective. They are more willing to work and uphold their position knowing that we will all benefit in the end as well as get the credit rightfully earned. And then they are able to stand back and say with respect “I help build that” “I was apart of this”.
The concept of grown Azz kids come from the reality we are mature individuals that are always growing and assuming. For what is true now might change and for that reason we need to use our ability to teach each and help each other grow.
