Ever come to the realization as an adult that you do or say the same things that your parent(s) did? Have you ever noticed that your mannerisms have a likeness to theirs? It shouldn’t come as a surprise. As children we learn to mimic what is done and said around us from the time we are babies. Humans learn by repetition.
As parents we must learn how to set good example for our children. In our everyday affairs we must be cognizant of how we speak to others, how we handle situations in and outside of the home, how we interact with our children and even how we eat.
If we set good examples today then we should expect that our children will do the same tomorrow. If we do the contrary then we shouldn’t expect a different result.
