This video really made me think about how we behave in front of children.
So please watch it.
We know that our behavior influences children, so why aren’t we more careful?
Violence In Front Of Children
I’ve never been violent in front of children, but I’ve been drunk in front of them, smoked in front of them, and sworn in front of them.
So what did they learn from me?
What Did You Do In Front Of Children?
And after you’ve asked yourself the question.
Maybe ask what they learned from you.
Do Kids Learn Violence And Other Shameful Behavior From TV?
I’m sure kids and young adults do learn anti-social behavior from films and television.
But which is more important, what they learn from the media or from you?
Worried About Your Child Or Children?
Parents who are closely involved with their offspring are far more likely to monitor their child’s behavior.
They will also set rules and boundaries and make sure that they are obeyed.
They will always be aware of their children’s whereabouts.
And will steer them away from troubled playmates.
So Let’s Be Honest With Ourselves
Nearly everybody is now complaining about how rude and thoughtless kids and young adults are today.
But next time you complain, please ask yourself what they learned from you.
