Welcome guest blogger Rachel Thomas to the New Dad Times, blog of the Fathers’ Forum.
Parents influence the minds of their children far more than what many of them realize. While they are young, children are absorbing every bit of information as they develop. The majority of this information comes from you. Everything you say, the way you act, and even many of your mannerisms will become integrated into your child. The way your child will approach this information can also be influenced by how you approach similar situations in your life.
The teachers at school may be developing their knowledge of studies, but it is you who will teach them about real life instances and adaptation. You can influence a variety of aspects of their life such as:
- Social interaction
- Eating habits
- Linguistic skills
- Emotional responses
- Even sense of humor
