Things that one should not do in front of children

One evening, as I was preparing dinner, I heard my almost 3 year old son who was then playing with histoys say “Stupid! Shut up!” I couldn’t quite believe what I just heard. I asked him what he just said andhe promptly replied “Nikhil say stupid”. I sat him down and told him “please don’t say that Nikhil, it’s notright”. Needless to say that night I was preoccupied, trying to wonder where he picked the word from.The very next day I was on the phone with one of my friends and I caught myself saying “Oh my god…shut up!!! That is so stupid”. Well, well, guess where my son picked that up from! This incident made me wonder what else is my child observing and learning from me.

This is so important to realize. Today morning I took my son to the park. While playing with a group of kids, I observed that one girl was often using the word "Yaar" and "teri to". I reminded her that's these are not nice words. She stared and moved on!!! Let's see what happens tomorrow :)

Thanks for the compilation! We tend to forget little things in our day to day life.. but those little things may make a big difference to our children.

This oh shit word is something I realized too, We do take a lt of care with what we don't want them to say and do ,however there is a lot our kids learn when they move into the big world outside home. Most important is to teach them humility, being caring to young and old, respect, showing affection,honest,and God Fearing and his they pick up from us. We need to live by example show respect to each other , differences sorted out before we go to bed showing affection toward each other (this make our kids warm and loving people) we are the best role models just be good humans and give them good memories to live by

"After the animated discussion you can always explain to the child that mom and dad are still friends, they just had a disagreement and it is natural to disagree once in a while" These lines are really thoughtful and easy to explain to a 3 yr old am goin to explain that to my son also...

Liked it through and through... true to the hilt..... something that we indulge ourselves in unwittingly. Reinforces the belief that children are the reflection of their parents..... What we do today has a direct impact on what children do in their lives in future. This article, thus, reminds us to be cautious with each step we take, with each word we speak.
