It's Our Responsibility
We, as parents, are responsible for our kids.
If my son is rude, it's my fault.
If my son is mean, it's my fault.
If my son is violent, it's my fault.
If my son is hyped up on sugar, it's my fault.
On the flip side, I can take responsibility for all the great things he does as well.
The point is that it's not the fault of the friends, the school, the neighbourhood, the TV shows, the food or anything else.
It's us, the parents.
We have the most influence. We get to choose what our kids eat, say and do. We get to say "yes" or "no" or "great work" or "I'm proud of you" or "we don't do that" or whatever our kids need in the moment. We get to mold these little miracles into beautiful humans.
Unfortunately there's no hand book for this stuff.... But I have learned one very important lesson along the way...
Kids do what we do, not what we say.
