The #TILTtip in June is “Roots”

“There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children:
one is roots, the other is wings.”

Roots

With all the choices we have to make in our parenting, the roots we choose to create for them will shape their lives. Roots are your values that you instill in them and the traditions that make memories for a lifetime.

A couple thoughts to consider –

1. What values are important to you?
2. What simple thing could you do this month to encourage your child to respect and grow with that value?
3. What could you do to model that value in your life? They watch us sometimes more than they listen to us!!

Remember that “Your actions speak so loud, I cannot hear what you are saying.” 

Model the behavior you want them to develop. Grow their roots, and you both grow your wings.

Here’s to our roots,
Marci

Each month in 2015, I will share with you one challenge to focus on to help yourself grow.  This is your year.
