The following advice comes from a “Raising Teens Today” meme that my partner shared on Facebook:
10 Lessons I Want to Instill in My Kids
If you make a mistake, apologize
If you’re thankful, show it.
If you’re confused, ask questions.
If you learn something. teach others.
If you’re stuck, ask for help.
If you’re wrong, fess up.
If you love someone, tell them.
If you trip, get back up.
If someone needs help, help them.
If you see wrong, take a stance.
What a lovely, yet simple, back-to-basics guide – not only for our children, but for ourselves as well. As this quote by David Bly best demonstrates “Your children will become what you are; so be what you want them to be.”
