Parents, Reach for the Sun

“It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.” — Joyce Maynard

The fastest and most effective way to learn and change is through modeling. Being a model, a living example of how to live successfully. For every person success has a different definition, it looks different and there are multiple levels within many facets of life. Are you seeing in your children the success desired?

Children learn what they live. That which you want to see in your child you must model first yourself. If you want to see respect then first you must be respectful. If you want them to be honest, smart, successful, loving, kind, fun -whatever you wish to see, be that yourself first and then you will soon see it in your children. They are watching you and soaking up every little thing, always. So, reach for the sun, show them how to really live and enjoy every moment, together in loving harmony.

Stay inspired to love more, live more and learn more.
