My attitude is dangerous....
Not always that it is bad, but that I just want to "chill".
I want to let the kiddos play and do what kids do best and I want to sit back and watch and "chill" (sit back and do very little).
Confession time! I don't want to do school!
I know that I should want to... I know they have to learn something
... and their little brains need some stimulation, but...
I also love to watch them play.
But it is dangerous....
I know it sets them up to be lazy and unaccomplished.
I know that if I sit around being idle I send the wrong impression to them.
I become the bad example!
Yet, they are only young once...
and I want them to enjoy it, too.
It is such a hard balance to find, but...
we are working on it.
We are trying to get in a groove and I am taking a
to getting back into our schooling this week.
Because it is my attitude I am trying to control....
I know that I am not doing enough "schooly" stuff,
but I am not getting overwhelmed and freaking out, either.
If I am freaking out they are learning THAT is the way to handle
So, I am watching my attitude....
so, they will develop a better attitude.
Many times I hear people (even myself) complaining
about their kids bad attitude
and I think that they are what we teach them to be....
Raise your hand if you see your bad attitude in your kids..
MINE is raised! Guilty!! Ughhhh!! That stings!
I am their example of what their attitude should be like.
When I see them grit their teeth,
I know where they learned it.
(..and we will stop with that little detail... hehehehe!)
ALL of my bad attitutudes seem to reveal themselves through my children
They are the seeds I sow....
they are fed with the watering I bring
...and they are tended and cared for by ME!
It's not all pretty to admit, but it is important to admit!!!
Our attitudes will become their attitudes and later...
when we are fussing at them for their bad attitude...
it will be our own bad attitude in reality.
Confused? Ponder it awhile! Read it again.
Watch your children and see who YOU see.
Is it good or is it bad?
