More on purposeful parenting

I've been meaning to share this "Children See, Children Do" video on parenting for a long time. Each time I watch it, I am moved by just how much good (or bad) we can impart in our children. Take a look and let me know what you think. It's pretty raw, so here's a little disclaimer:



Thanks to Kathleen for unearthing this powerful video for me!

I have a pit in my stomach after watching that video. Thanks for the not-so-gentle reminder that "children see, children do."

thanks for posting this video, what a great reminder that children really hear and see everything we do and say, especially the things we shouldn't say or do!!

Whoa. This choked me up.....

It's so true of both parents and non parents...it's an amazingly small world when you take a moment to notice even the smallest eyes are watching. Community is so important, all the way around.

Powerful video.
