Do you as a parent agree that being open and honest with your child/children benefits them in the near future? What advice if any would you offer unto another parent to help better their parenting skills?
A good basis is to lay out a moral code for them to follow. Honesty is a good foundation setter. Letting them know it is not ok to lie. You establish the right and wrongs of your household.
They need to see this in your example because try as we might to say do what I say not what I do, this is not a remedy or a quick fix. Behaviorial patterns start at home and hard to break once habits are formed.
The level of honesty yielded, depends on the maturity of your child and the situation. Much success to you and your family
Honesty, respect for others, respect for self, love and acceptance of self and others, love of God and fellow human beings. That all people make mistakes and that the process of growth occurs over a lifetime. I believe parents set the example for children in many aspects of like.
I always thought laying out that moral code and setting the example by following it yourself, but then my kids became teenagers. Right now, I am just standing firm on my belief in God's promises and that his word promises me that if I raise a child up in the way he (she) should go, that when she is old, she will not depart from it.
Definitely don't be hypocritical. they catch on to that real quick. These days, I'm spending a ton of time praying, talking, encouraging, reminding. Hope it pays off one day. Phew!
