Good Wednesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: you cannot teach your children what you don’t live. Making your children follow rules and disciplining them when they do wrong is important. Kids need to learn boundaries and they need to respect authority because this helps them respect themselves and others. Talking to your kids and listening helps them understand compassion and empathy, but the greatest teacher is what they see their parents do. Telling your kids to love others, respect others and obey laws won’t matter if you’re racist, disrespectful and break the law. Morals and values lived in the home are what your children will live in their lives long after they’ve grown up and moved away.
