There is a Chinese proverb that suggests this thought: “Peace in the world begins with peace in our homes. Peace in our homes begins with peace in our hearts.”
It is part of a parent’s duty to be a role model for their children.
If we want our children to be kind, understanding and empathetic people they MUST see that behavior modeled for them.
You cannot threaten children into being kind.
While we all want children to be ‘nice’ to each other, many children see their parents being ‘not nice’ to other people.
Are you modeling wanted behavior for your children?
