Teaching Children By Example

Updated on March 15, 2012

I've witnessed what I call tag team parenting between my daughter and her husband. They are both on the same page in relations to how they want to raise their daughter.

When it comes to sharing, they will ask each other to use their chair or a toy they are holding. They one will say to the other, yes I will share with you and respond Thank You for sharing with me.

When she was a year old they began using the Please when they handed her something then Thank You and Your Welcome after she took it. Now it's automatic, she says please when asking for help, a glass of juice or milk. From hearing us say Bless You when someone sneezed and now she says Bless You when someone sneezes.

When disciplining her they talk calmly, no yelling or loud voices. They do use time out. Those times when she won't eat ( she is very picky) they won't give her a snack after. She's gotten used to this yet sometimes she'll ask and when they say no, she quietly say oh no,

There are also some shows they let her watch, Super Y is about reading and teaching children how to spell. No, she's not reading or spelling at two years old. However, she has learned all her letters, numbers and colors. They taught her the colors using M & M's. Her letters and numbers from watching teaching video's on Youtube. Her numbers by playing with the blocks. They taught her how to pick up her toys by singing the clean up song, clean up, clean up, every body do your share. At her daycare when people come to visit the children has been taught to say it's nice to meet you and shake their hand.

They require her to apologize if she has talked fresh, threw something because she was angry, hit or tried to hit someone, behaves rudely or does something they believe there needs to be an apology for. Together they parent very well and they are consistent which is a huge factor. She knows that if mama says no than daddy will to. She tries to play the grammie card and I tell her she needs to listen to mama and daddy.

Good Parenting, Consistancy, Specific Rules, Always Parent With Love!!!
