Motivational Power Quote
Lead by Example
“Example has more followers than reason.
We unconsciously imitate which please to
the character we most admire.”
Christian Nevell Bovee 1820 – 1904
American author, lawyer
As I see it . . . . . . .
Lead by example
As children we follow the example of our parents.
Children will emulate the behavior of their parents in their daily actions. When you meet polite child you will find that their parents are polite as well.
The children will mirror the parents in many things like the type of food they eat, their choice of ice cream, the types of TV shows they watch. If the parents read to the children when they’re young they will grow up and become a reader.
When a parent nurturers and encourages their children and finds the time to spend quality with them. As an adult they will have a stronger family bond and become nurturing parents.
As a parent we have a powerful influence on our children. They will follow our examples into adulthood and mirror our behavior as an adult.
We can tell children what to do and as they get older they tend to listen far less. Children are far more likely to follow our example.
Lead by example and leave your footprint in the sands that your child will want to follow in.
