As much as we try to divert our children from behaving as we do, it’s inevitable. They will do as they see and not as you say. Think about it you learned things from your parents by the way they behaved around you, its something you cant help. Yes you could tell a child how to behave and give them as much advice as possible. It will help but you should often do as you preach. You cant expect your kids to sit there and not imitate your behavior in some way. So with that said why not be as good a person as possible. I’m not saying to dull and robot like but teach them by doing yourself what you want them to be. You are their role model act like one!!!
