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.

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.
