“Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.” – Neil Postman
Everyone derives their values and morals from something – religion, books, role models. I didn’t believe in role models when I was young because no one affected me or influenced me deeply enough. The very little I learned was from the people around me – family, friends, neighbors, teachers. All the more reason why I get nervous about teaching values to my son because majority of what kids learn from their parents is by watching them. We are what we think; We are what we do & our kids are an extension of ourselves.
