You Leave a Lasting Impression on Your Children

Happy mother and son
 Last night I stumble on to an article that was written by one of my children about loves true soul mate. It was a love story that rang close to being true to how my wife and I actually met and got married. 

 Over the years my wife and I have been totally in love with one another and we have exemplified that to our children. Love is something that children see and identify with, it’s something that every man woman and child desires. So when I came across this story I was amazed at the lasting impression my wife and I had on our young upstarts.

 

Think about this folks, what we parents do, has an impact on our children that is undeniable. For instance if my wife and I fought all the time we would have children that grew up in a home that arguing and anger would seem normal to them. They in turn would most likely act the same with each other and with their spouse when they got married.

 

My wife and I hardly ever fight or argue but when we do have disagreements and differences of opinion we tend to settle them quietly and generally not in front of our children.  Lets face it marriage is work that is not always easy, but the rewards for doing the work are great. Parents the mark you leave on your children will greatly depend on how you handle your personal home life affairs.  

 

My children see the love that my wife and I have for each other. They observe how we seldom quarrel. For them our relationship is the norm for how a couple should live life. Totally in love!!!

In retrospect I expect that the apple will not fall far from the tree. I’m believing that what our children learn from us they will apply now and when they get older and develop a romantic relationship of  their own.

    Teaching love, caring for other, and respect are some of the most important things parents can teach their children. When spouses put each other first, their children will benefit. I wholeheartedly agree that it is never in the best interest of children to witness their parents fighting. Thanks for validating what I also believe in!

      Great Blog. It always aezams me the judgement of adults to other parents. I realized that if you know the parents or pay attention you will see the personality of the parents in the child. So the quiet reserved parents that have the quiet reserved child that never makes a fuss can’t understand how my darling daughter could act so outgoing and adventorous (like momma) at a gathering. Go figure!!!
