Telling lie in front of your children is something you should never do.

DON’T BE LAZY IN FRONT OF YOUR CHILDREN: Being lazy in front of your children is bad as the kids also feel a need to become lazy some times, when you don’t do the needful and your children start noticing it, they will feel the need to be lazy too as they believe it’s a good habit since their parent also does it. In a case where by you have to be lazy due to tiredness find a more justify way to escape the work instead of appearing lazy to them. You are your children best behaviour teacher, remember whatever you do they are watching you and they often pick ideas from it.

DON’T NAG ABOUT THINGS IN FRONT OF YOUR CHILDREN: Nagging in front of kids is very bad, once children notice their mother or father is always complaining about things, they will also see reason why they also need to complain about things too. Try as much as possible to complain less in front of your children, don’t keep complaining and expect them to be satisfied with what you give them.

They will also see reason to tell you and other people they are not satisfied about a particular thing since they have seen their parents doing it often. Try as much as possible to reduce your complaining method in front of your kids.

DON’T EVER FEEL WEAK IN THE PRESENT OF YOUR KIDS: Showing your weak point in front of your children is very wrong cause they also learn to feel weak through that process, try as much as possible to hold your fears in front of your children until they reach a certain age. Showing your kids, you are not strong enough to fight your battles makes them lazy to fight theirs too.

Be very courageous and hold your head up high in front of your kids. Show them that no battles are too big to overcome as far as they are alive and healthy.

DON’T SHOW LESS CONCERN ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE: A child that’s train with so much love is easily recognize in the society as they are the type that see love and care as an important thing to do, they care for people around them like they mean the world to them. Those children are the kids that are train with lots of concern and love.

Endeavour to show your kids care, don’t act less concern in front of them as these are the things they put in mind and act on as they grow older. You are your kid’s biggest strength and you should endeavour to act with so much love in front of them.
