You know, I have been talking about the three R's... Respect, Resourcefulness, and Responsibility. These are all important traits for our children to learn as they are some of the basics of living a productive life.
This will not happen if we as parents do not set an example of being respectful, resourceful, and responsible.
How can our children learn to be respectful if they see us showing disrespect to other people around us? If we are lazy, or act as if we are owed a living, how can our children learn to be resourceful? If we blame others for our mistakes or excuse ourselves when we have done something wrong, will our children learn responsibility? CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE!!
