kids about the driving style of their parents(dutch)

Despite all efforts of schools and other educational programs, the most important in education is the example you give yourself.

You don’t need to have the perfect happy life to be a good example, but you just have to be good in reacting to problems, so that your kids know if something is going wrong in life, they always can find a solution.

Sometimes giving the good example isn’t enough, because somewhere along the road of life your kids lost confidence in you, and that is not always your own fault…but still there is only one good way to react, and that’s still giving the good example. You are never right when you get mad, and God knows how many times I got mad…

Nobody ever told raising kids was easy. I think it’s worthwhile.

Raising kids is educating yourself in the first place.
