"One of the most important things we adults can do for young children is to model the kind of person we would like them to be." - Carol B.Hillman.
We think children, especially young children, don't know what's going on around them.
Anger and negativity are not beyond their understanding.
The younger children may not understand all the words but they do understand the underlying emotions.
They can feel those emotions.
The moment we begin to change our attitude from negative to positive,
We will undoubtedly notice an imemdiate change in the children's attitude.
When children are around calm, happy, positive adults, they absolutely blossom.
Equally important is their sense of values.
They must learn to value themselves and others for who they are, not for what they possess.
It doesn't matter how many video gaems you give your children to enjoy,
but their behavior towards others and their feelings are the once that count.
They must learn to judge other people for what's inside them - not on how they look, where they live, or where they own.
This is something that requires a lifetime of training for them to learn the lessons.
It is our duty to instill good value in our children;
Teaching them about being there for friends and relatives, rather than buying things for them.
Encourage your children to find out what's unique and special about their friends,
rather than the size of the television that friend owns.
The child is a witty imitator who copies every bahaviour he sees, our children are a great responsibility that we will be held accountable for and therefore, their responsibility requires us to set a good example for them and to install in them the highest values that promote the concept of morolity.
Hence we should first revise our behaviour and strengthen it. So that we can be a good role model for our children.
