Normally when we think about learning how to be a parent, we think about interactions with our children. How we discipline them, how we support them, how we guide them and teach them and help them grow. Do we say “good job” or “that’s great effort”? Do we use “time out” or is there a better way to deal with the times when they make a bad decision?
What we are teaches the child far more than what we say, so we must be what we want our children to become.Joseph Chilton Pearce
But it’s not as simple as teaching our kids how to behave and live life. We have to show them, not just tell them, how to live. And that requires us as parents and educators to be the type of people that we want our kids to become.
