This is a good question – that can be used in so many ways. It begins with “What are you teaching _______ (fill in the blank for yourself, a student, a subordinate, whomever). Today – I’d like to insert one of the most important people you will even have the privilege to have in your life.

“What are you teaching your child?”

When you go ballistic and have a temper tantrum (yes, we know adults have them too!), smoke, drink and drive, are rude or disrespectful, hurt them – in any way – physically, emotionally, psychologically, or even fail to read them a book or help them with their homework – what is it that you are teaching your child? When they see you being disrespected, staying in unkind and unsupportive relationships – what are you teaching your child?

What are you teaching yourself?
