I come to you this morning with one question
What are you teaching your children?
or should the question really be
What are your children thinking?
When a child does the unthinkable (some examples in recent news; 15 year old rapes a woman in broad daylight as cars pass by or children taunt a girl with a disability on the school bus repeatedly), we often think first of the mother. What is she teaching her child. Some of us may question the parents teachings but often it is blamed on the mother. If you are a mother or father, do you teach your child to bully or take advantage of others. The answer is likely no. The questions really needs to be directed toward the children. A child is not always a reflection of their parents.
Incidences such as the above links are great opportunities for parents and care-givers to speak with the children. Find out what they think about the incidence first, then use this opportunity to enforce whats right and wrong.
This post was inspired by a posting by Live By Design Coaching.
