“Children are natural mimics who act like their parents despite every effort to teach them good manners.” Author Unknown
Today’s post combines an observation with a question and ends in a proposition.
In an effort to show deep love and commitment parents often sacrifice their own personal health for the health of their teenager.
If teenagers mimic their parents, then wouldn’t they eventually as adults continue the pattern of putting their children’s health above their own?
If you as a parent prioritized your own personal health and allowed your teenager to see that, they would learn to value their own personal health and take responsibility for it. Then as healthy adults they would continue the pattern with their children.
