Adult Behavior





Don’t punish and blame the child for what they repeat

Hold the adult accountable for what they say and do in front of the child.

    That is why I’ve pushed back from what I was told and now make my own world. Yet still, those niggling “old” habits do pop up that I was taught and I have to see them in order to squash them and make new. Awesome post, Colleen!!

  6. So true, Colleen – I used to say that children are little amplifiers for our own sin.

    To do otherwise feels cruel to me! We need to hear what comes out of our adult mouths…and ask who is listening!

  8. This reminds me a little of the time, years ago, when I was telling my husband something that had happened during the day, and my young daughter chimed in with, “And then did you say, ‘What the hell?!'” Oops. :/
