Remember that you are your child’s first and most influential teacher. What you say, and how you say it affects your children more than you realize.￼
We are in an unusual situation in this pandemic. We have lost traditions, we have lost the opportunity to go places and do things that we love, and we have been unable to be with those we love the way we want to be.
How we relate to those things is a choice we make. It’s so easy to complain, be angry, and become bitter. That teaches our children also to be angry complainers who are bitter.￼￼
Rather, let’s look for the good in each day. Let’s find the beautiful things in each day. There are blessings in the midst of a pandemic and restrictions for the sake of health.
As significant adults, we have the opportunity to teach our children perseverance, steadiness, and gratitude. Or, we can teach them to be bitter and angry and upset.
Who do you want your kids to be?￼￼
