Home is child’s first school and parents his first and most influential teachers.
A child inherits not only genes from parents but also their opinions, behaviour, language, beliefs, values and attitude. Children observe and emulate their parents consciously and sub consciously which forms the base of their personality.
Role models for traditional values: Respect for elders, family ties, festivals, love for the country is easily absorbed by the child if he sees that happening around him.
Role models for ethics and values: Don’t lie in front of your children. Do small acts of charity. Don’t ill-treat servants. Make your children unselfish, compassionate human beings by setting an example.
Role model for behaviour and language: If you act aggressive, don’t be surprised if your child’s becomes quarrelsome. Use refined language to keep your child away from foul language.
Role model for relationships: A child loses faith in relation-ships if he experiences ugly scenes at home. Love and mutual understanding between parents ensures loving and caring children.
Role model for lifeskills: Let your child imbibe confidence, communication skills, positive attitude from you. You need not always hold your child’s finger to guide him. Leave footprints of right upbringing, he will find his own way.
