Thought For the Day: We Teach Our Children By Our Actions and Through Our Words

“The words a father speaks to his children in the privacy of the home are not overheard at the time, but, as in whispering galleries, they will be clearly heard at the end and by posterity.” – Jean Paul Richter, writer (1763-1825)

Every word and every action has an impact on our children.  We’ll never be perfect.  I get that.  There’s not a lot to be said or done about that.  Except that we should always strive to set a good example in all that we do.

We should never discount the power of our words either.
