03 Apr BE the best example you can be
“To bring up a child in the way he should go, travel that way yourself once in a while.”
– Josh Billings
My niece is my social media manager. She helps me with these messages and just about everything I do on the internet and I love her tons! And today is her birthday.
Having never had my own kids, I really cherish my nieces and nephews and love my role as the “cool aunt”. I never got that weird thing in my brain that happens to people when they become parents, so they all think I’m awesome.
As I have grown in this work, it has become so apparent to me how much we are influenced by those around us, even when we don’t mean to be; so I am very conscious of the example I set. I wish I had always been this aware.
The little ones are watching you. Be the kind of person you want them to grow up to be. Show them the value of discipline and patience, kindness, tolerance and compassion.
