Oh my gosh, I really have to watch what I say because he/she repeats everything they hear!

Do you recall making a statement like that about a little one in your life? They are like little Parakeets when they learn to speak.

Next they want to help with laundry, pump the gas, talk on the phone and do everything they see you do. It’s even more if they have older siblings because they really want to do everything they see them do.

I say all of this to remind you that children are watching, repeating and learning from everything you do. We as parents are the first teachers and leaders for our children so if you really love your children and want them to be their best in life it all starts at home! They need to see love, not abuse, healthy communication, not vicious arguments. Just be mindful of what you expose them to.
