Every day we set an example for them in how they should behave, what they should eat, whether they should exercise, etc.
We ARE Role Models; even if the children aren’t our own….nephews, nieces, even the neighbor’s kids.
I’ve been working really hard on being a good role model for my child. I want him to see that trying new things and being patient and kind, for example, do have their own rewards.
If you don’t know my son, he has a strong personality. As a strong personality myself, it’s important to show him how to interact with others and to be aware of others and their feelings. There are days though, that he will push to the very brink to see what he can get away with. Pretty sure God is getting me back for my childhood. 😉
And yep, my son is aware that he is “different” from some other kids his age due to his ADHD and is ok with it. He is the most amazing person and is destined to do great things in life.
