How we influence our children
As we think about having children we often think we know how we will raise them. We see others with their children and yes we all do it, we judge on their parenting skills. We tell ourselves that we would never do, say or even behave the way someone else did with their kids or perhaps maybe the opposite with something you see and agree with and we tell ourselves that we will be just the same in the same situation..
Reality is, that it is the same with everything we have not experienced yet for ourselves in life, which in this case Is parenting. We seem to think we know what we will do or say prior to us experiencing it first hand for ourselves. These are normal reactions.
We learn from watching & listening. Whether this be good or not so good.
