Role Modeling

When I was growing up, we live in a farm where there's a lot of guava trees. Every time we goes home from school, I would always climb in my favorite guava tree and picked some ripe ones.
I feel bad that my kids  don't enjoy that kind of things very often.  We let them experience  it though every chance they get.

"Role Modeling is the most basic responsibility of parents.  They are handing life's scripts to their children, scripts that in all likelihood will be acted out for much of the rest of the children's lives."
Stephen R. Covey.

  9. Wonderful to see your daughter climbing a tree. We had several fruit trees in our yard when I was a child, and we spent almost as much time up in the trees as we did on the ground, and our friends did the same. Climbing trees was an important part of childhood.

  11. Back in my young days, climbing trees was part of our fun. We did not have things children have today.

  14. It's hard for kids in America to learn to climb trees because they are not brought up that way. Kids here in the provinces normally are adept tree climbers. I, being born in the city, also do not know how to climb trees unlike my cousins in the province. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
