Parental Wisdom® welcomes guest blogger Dr. Vicki
Dr. Vicki’s “Top 10” Parenting Series!
TEACH BY EXAMPLE
“Do as I say, not as I do,” does not work!
The behaviors you model are the behaviors your children will learn. If you want them to be responsible, kind, respectful, moral, independent, loving, honorable, etc., then, you must show them how to lead an honorable, kind, moral, respectful, etc. life. Knowing that they can count on Mom and Dad to ‘do the right thing’ provides a strong sense of security and stability for your children, and a model by which they can fashion their lives. They may drift astray, but are likely to come back to being the kind of person you modeled.
Top 10 Tips to Teach by Example:
1. Love each other.
2. Live your life the way you want your children to live theirs.
3. Be honest.
4. Show respect for others.
5. Take good care of yourself.
6. Take responsibility for your actions.
7. Express your feelings.
8. Use positive coping skills.
9. Be kind and compassionate..
10. Follow the rules.
Enjoy your children!
