Everyone is asking, how do you teach children anything these days?! They don’t listen, they are so distracted and they all think that they know better!
The answer has not changed over the millennia, unfortunately 🙂 We have to role model no matter how difficult it is.
If you have had a difficult day and someone struggling to put food on their table knocks on your door, the patience and generosity with which you respond is being recorded by your children in real time. Five hundred lectures about the importance of caring for the needy will not have close to that impact.
How do you use your time? Do you live a healthy lifestyle? Do you value education and learning when you have free time? Are you generous with your family? Do you give charity gladly?
So here’s the point: don’t worry about the fact that your children do not listen to most of what you say… Concern yourself said with the fact that they record all they see and it will impact them forever!
