“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.” – James Baldwin
It is quite possible that the eyes are far greater tools for learning than the ears. At least it seems that way when I notice that our children are much more likely to do what we do, rather than what we say. Very often our actions carry greater weight than our words, so let’s remain aware of what we are doing while our kids’ eyes are upon us. They will, at some point, imitate what they see. That might seem like a cause for concern, but in reality, it is not. We are fortunate to be the ones who have a golden opportunity to positively influence our children’s actions by carefully monitoring our own.
