Setting An Example – the difference just one person makes!

Set The Example

“Good will, caring regard, gentle words, loving deeds, peaceful actions – these then bring us closer to one another.” ~ Penny L Howe

Whether child or an adult, its human nature to watch what other people are doing in your vicinity. This means whether you’re paying attention or not, somebody else is probably paying attention to what you’re doing.

Children learn by example. From the time they’re old enough to move on their own, they will parrot their parents and siblings facial expressions, word usage and movements. Even as adults, many people mimic what others are doing.

More or less, everyday we all set an example based on what we do or don’t do! How we behave in a specific situation and so on.

So the obvious point here is what type of example are we setting?

Just by watching things unfold everywhere around the globe, I’m thinking we “all of us” need to work on this one. And more than just a little. Because its something each person can do, individually, to make a difference that matters.

Set an example that’s inspirational to others. One you can be proud of. One your family and friends can support and then duplicate. Starting with just one person – YOU!

A most pleasant weekend to everyone,

  1. Children’s behaviour is learnt behaviour. It is the examples they are set. If a child is racist, it is because they have seen someone else be racist.

    If we can all train the next generation to be kind and considerate to one another, then maybe the generation after that will be free of war , violence and hate.
