Today's Parenting Quote

Hi There,

I am part of a daily parenting quote email list. Most of the parenting quotes I really don't find all that great but today's. Well, today's was a perfect example of why we parent the way we do. We don't try to "teach" our kids. We try to be the way we would like our kids to behave and when they behave in a way we don't like we look at ourselves for the reasons. How can you tell your kids to say please and thank you for things when you don't, or how can you tell your kids not to hit others when you spank them? Here's the quote...

"Children are natural mimics -- they act like their parents in spite of every attempt to teach them good manners." ~Anonymous

Don't teach. BE!!
