    What sort of habits do you see your child or teen doing, that you did or are presently doing?

    This can be a good or bad habit.

    My daughter frowns when she concentrates and sticks her tongue out. It makes me laugh cause I know I do the same thing. Although the extra frown lines I now have aren't quite so funny.

      That is so funny. When I am concentrating on something I also stick out my tongue (but no frowns). My daughter also does the same thing without the frown. I always know if I a working too hard if I see her start doing it.

    My step kids are starting to way over analyze everything the way I do,kids just tend to pick up habits real easy which is why it is a very good idea to watch what we say to and around our children.

    My children all exhibit a sense of social justice.  I love to hear about my adult children's experiences. Often they'll start with "Do you remember the time when you ..." - and then go on with a similar story of their own.

    Even as youngsters they would never turn their backs on other kids who needed help, would intervene and stand up to bullies, challenge teachers who behaved badly, and bring home lost puppies and troubled teenagers.

    I'm very pleased I didn't set them a bad example. Their lives could have turned out very differently.
