Not setting the right model

  1. Children learn from their parents. They don’t do what their parents teach them to do, they do what their parents do. If you set the example of a person who is always complaining and worrying, then they’ll also develop into people who are complainers and worriers.

  2. If you are a person who always grumbles about his increased body weight, but takes no action to get rid of it, you set a model of a person who grumbles but doesn’t do anything to change his situation. That’s what your children will do too.

  3. If you send out messages that your son deserves a different treatment than your daughter, your children will internalize these messages for a lifetime. If your treatment reflects a superior position for men and a subordinate position for women, this is what your children will carry around.

  4. If you want your child to have high self-esteem, if you want him to be a person who acts instead of complaining and worrying, if you want him to believe in an equal footing of men and women, then give him the example of a person who does the same.

  5. If you set the model of a person who treats herself with low self-regard, always crying over her unfortunate luck, that’s what your children will learn to do too.


    Be that person you want your kid to become tomorrow. Set the right model.
