  1. While all the points you have mentioned are very important and relevant, the most important, according to me, is being a good role model. I have noticed this first hand with my daughter. If I tell her to behave a certain way, it only gets reinforced once she sees me behave the same way!

    Great post! πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful post! I don’t have kids but I look after my nephew 3 days a week and a lot of this resonates with me.
    Kids are the sweetest of humans and I LOVE their brutal honesty. Such a beautiful part of life.
