"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." James Baldwin
This is one of my personal favorites (that I have to remind myself about very often). As a parent four boys, there is certainly a percentage of time that they appear not to listen or even retort disagreeably, making me judge if I even know how to father! Naively, I always thought they would just listen to everything you had to say. After all, I made them together with my wife.
Think of anyone you know and if you know them well, observe if you can, how their parents live their lives. Not always but very often, they are a reflection of their parents. Their dispositions, reactions, perspectives and the way they lead their lives, is commonly, quite aligned to their parents. Good and bad.
So how can we as parents ensure that our kids have the type of life we'd like for them to have? Be the change. Let them see and feel what that change can look like for themselves, through you.
