This morning, I heard a very interesting conversation between mother and son. The mother shared with the son, “Please lower your volume as you are behaving like an animal.” In the past, the mother also always yelled, shouted and scolded the maid, She was not realise in her behaviour. All her action being copied by her son.
It’s a great reminder that we love to look outward instead of inward. It’s so easy to point out an error or shortcoming from others instead of ourselves. Before we give any negative comment in others, please remember to look inward.
Children love to copy all our action and speech. They are a great reflector on us. As such, we must be mindful in our action and speech. Why not lead by example? I remembered a friend shared with me that she doesn’t want her children to tell lie, as such she set a good example. She wanted to encourage her kids on taking care of environment, she’ll bring ecobags for shopping, container for take-away food, practice recycling and others. She is successfully sow a seed to the young children by her action.
Be mindful on your action and speech! Always lead by example!
Make sure your speech and your action is the same!
