Parents as Role Models for Their Children

Posted on July 8th, 2009

Creating peaceful atomosphere in the home…

Children are curious. They like to try new things as they explore their world. Sometimes, they experience difficulty as their imagination and creativity lead to misadventure. If parents yell and scream, call names, throw things, or slam doors, they teach their children to do likewise. Children will become  distrustful, and may eventually be disrespectful to their parents. But parents who lead by loving example and demonstrate appropriate behavior for conflict resolution, help their children to develop trust, respect, feelings of self-worth and the ability to get along well with others. It is not difficult to discuss problem areas and it should never be difficult to listen respectfully to different feelings and points of view.  Be a good role model for your children!
