Model What You Want
Everyday you teach - sometimes in words but, more often in your behavior. For example, when kids see you read a book, they learn that you value literacy. Likewise, when they see your patience with a painfully slow sales clerk, they learn tolerance.
Nearly 80% of what children learn is from what they see acted out before their eyes - they're visual learners!
Want generous kids? Give help/money to people.
Want your kids to respect the teacher? Show respect him/her.
Want your kids to listen to you? Listen to them.
In your daily discipline remember, actions really do "speak" louder than words.
