What Are You Doing In Front Of Your Children?

What Are You Doing In Front Of Your Children?

What are you doing in front of your children? Kids mimic their parents, even if they don’t understand what is going on . . .

Do you get angry? What happens when you are angry? Do you let that anger show?

Question Mark for Tame Your BrainAnd what are the consequences? This, perhaps?

Your children are playing with their friends. Your child gets angry and someone gets hurt, physically or emotionally.

Will those children be allowed to play together once the parents of the other kids see that happening?

Is it a pattern? Think about it.  Friends are very important to children.

Do you cheat? Do your children see you cheat?

And what are the consequences? This, perhaps?

You have company. The children are playing. Your child cheats and all the kids get upset.

Will those children want to play with your child?

What has happened here?  Think about it.   Friends are very important to children.

And, since friends are very important to children, shouldn’t they be very important to you?

What are we doing in front of — our kids? We need to tell and show them what is acceptable. Do you let them swear? Punch someone in the nose? Yell at someone?

They learn MORE from people they love and respect. They learn FASTER from people they love and respect. They MODEL people they love and respect.

*** NOTE: All is not lost if you do see something you don’t like repeated right in front of your eyes. Let your mind go back over your actions and see if YOU were the one who taught them to do that. If so, the next time you are doing it in front of them say something like, “Oh! I shouldn’t have done that. I’m sorry. I won’t do that again, OK?” We all make mistakes. Apologizing is VERY acceptable behavior. Show it to children all the time.

Children live what they learn. What are you teaching them?
