Model the behavior you want those around to have…and they will.
Easily stated, difficult to implement.
Kids aren’t behaving like we want? They’re usually acting out what they’ve seen. Is it exactly what they’ve seen? No, they’ve taken adult behaviors and applied them to their world.
Friends aren’t being friends? They’re probably mirroring what we’re doing.
Spouse is less than stellar? So are we.
It’s magical and scary we have such an influence on how the people around us behave.
