Yesterday, I had a talk with a wonderful sister regarding school for the kids. We spoke about structure, routines, etc. While she was speaking I thought of how we as moms are examples for our kids.
We are not only their teacher, if we homeschool, but we are their role models. They will repeat what we say and what we do. If we come off hard and mad, they will be scared, mean, and sad. If we come off loving and happy, they will most likely be sweet and caring. I thought of this verse as I woke up this morning. What are we teaching our kids? What do they see and hear through our character? It really convicted me to evaluate myself in how I come off to my kids. Discipline is necessary and a must, but outside of discipline, what do they see?
