So while I admit that I’m still learning how to do this parenting gig right, there was one concept that I was certain of from the day that Chickie was born that I wanted her to understand: How to not only be good but to do good in this world.
I've come up with four ideas I think that fit the mold of teaching our children to not only be good but to do good as well. These are things that we’ve worked on each day since Chickie was a baby to make habit and routine in her life. They have proven to be beneficial in shaping the person that she’s becoming so I hope you find them helpful for your little one as well.
Catch my child being good and make sure she knows how proud I am of her.
Be the model for doing good.
Make sure that my words and actions are aligned with my values.
Teach them to do good and big things in their small world.
