For Anyone Raising Kids

I saw something on a sign tonight that I found very interesting and true. It said:

Every home is a school. What are you teaching?

I really liked that because it drove home the fact that our kids look to us for so much, and they learn a lot from us whether we meant to teach or not.

I like that.
I'm not really sure why some people need to be reminded of that so much.
Where do they think learning anything begins?

The problem is the ones teaching by bad example don't have a clue. Then when their kids turn out just like them, they wonder how that happened (and of course they don't recognize that they turned out just like them).

I've had a couple of male students whom had severe agression issues in class....and then when you see dad come and pick them up from school and find out the child was misbehaving you can hear the father screaming at the kid all the way to the parking lot! Yet they don't know where they get their behavioral issues...makes me think twice on informing the parent when the child acts up!
