Be A Good Role Model For Your Child PDF Print E-mail
Children learn by imitating. Be the kind of person you want your child to be.
  • If you treat others COURTEOUSLY and fairly, so will he.
  • If you LISTEN TO OTHER PEOPLE and try to help them, so will she.
  • If you show RESOURCEFULNESS, so will he.
  • If you KEEP CALM when things go wrong, so will she.
  • If you SHOW YOUR LOVE, so will she.
  • If you RESPECT HIM, he'll respect you.
  • If you HAVE SELF-DISCIPLINE, she'll learn it too.
  • If you tackle problems with a POSITIVE ATTITUDE ("I can do it") rather than a negative attitude ("Oh no, what will I do now?")
Your child will learn to do the same.
