Working as a teacher gave me a great opportunity to observe how kids can become copies of their parents sometimes.
The same gestures, the same melody of voice, the same rolling eyes, the same perfectionism, the same compassion, the same generosity... Sometimes I'm happy to see the great qualities that parents 'pass onto' their children, and sometimes I'm sad, because children behave exactly the same as their parents, even if the behavior is destructive. Parents sometimes forget how important they are in their children's lives. Children are like sponges - they soak in everything they see and feel.
So, today, I would like to thank all the parents who are aware what an impact they have on their children. They are good example to their children, they try hard to radiate the best of their Self, and are a 'model' to their children.
What did you take over from your parents while observing them?
