Whereas we want children to do as told, little do we know that our actions matter more to them than our words. They look at us as role models and will re-invent themselves in our footsteps when they grow up.
How we interact with others, use technology, eat, drink, drive and even walk will be wired deep into their DNA. Everything we do and speak in their presence is absorbed and stored in bulk for future use.
Below are habits children inherit from our bad parenting styles:
- Alcoholism, especially when we become a nuisance at home
- Foul language
- Bad manners and etiquette
- Money; how we manage, borrowing and fighting over money
- And all the other ills outlined above
- Lack of empathy
