Kids are always watching us. There's no getting around it.
And what they don't realize is, they're absorbing our behavior in ways they won't even think about until they're adults.
If we're always on our phones, they'll grow up to be distracted.
If we're stress about not having enough time, they'll believe there's never enough time. To practice, work on health, or the other important things.
Whatever we prioritize, they'll prioritize.
Whatever we put last, they'll put last.
It's hard being a parent. It's a 24/7 job. You don't get sick days. You don't get vacations very often.
But the best thing every parent can do is ask which examples they're setting.
And which ones they want to change.
