This statement struck such a cord with me. Especially as a mother and grandmother. Our children are watching, CONSTANTLY. They hear what we say, to them and to others. They see what we do, to them and to others. They see it all…
When I gave birth to my daughters, the hospital sent me home with a “goodie bag.”
In that goodie bag was the poem “Children Learn What They Live.”
Children learn by our EXAMPLE.
What they see us do, is what they will do.
WE are our child’s teachers. Teachers of LIFE SKILLS.
They pick up on our beliefs.
They pick up on our values.
They pick up on our behaviors.
Our world is in a state of CHANGE. It is in a state of QUESTIONING what was, and RESHAPING what will be. This reshaping of our world, is creating the NEW world that our children and grandchildren will be living in. No matter what side of this “questioning” and “change” you may be on, what do you want your children to see?
Do you want them see you being SILENT?
Being in FEAR of speaking up for what you believe in?
Do you want them to see you FIGHTING?
Do you want them to see you SPEAKING UP AND ACTING UP, in a peaceful and civilized manner, for what you believe in?
This is a HUGE opportunity for us to TEACH our children.
To teach them how to be good citizens.
To teach them how to be loving.
To teach them how to be caring.
To teach them how to be compassionate.
To teach them how to have empathy for others.
To teach them to be accepting of different beliefs.
To teach them how to SAY things better.
To teach them how to DO things better.
To teach them how to BE better!
It is our RESPONSIBILITY as parents, as care givers, as citizens, to TEACH OUR CHILDREN. This is a pivotal moment in our countries history, and in the lives of our children. Be mindful of your behavior. And remember, your children are watching…
