Where the Rubber Meets the Road
“Your children will see what you’re all about by what you live rather than what you say.” (Dr. Wayne Dyer)
Integrity occurs when your actions match your beliefs, and, although that is a difficult path to be on, it is definitely worth it. Kids are watching your every move, like it or not. They pick up on the subtle ways you interact with others and your surroundings. If you preach to them about respecting others, and then you treat the grocery clerk with disdain, they’ll notice. If you lecture them about working hard in school, and then you slack off at your job, they’ll notice.
Today, take a moment to think about how you really want your kids to see you. Then take the steps necessary to make that happen.
