You are your child's primary source of information about the world around them; that also makes you the strongest "filter" of what information will reach them. As the holidays approach and you share more special time together as a family, remember to model the behaviors and attitudes you want your children to demonstrate. From manners to anger management to nutrition and body image, your children look to you for the appropriate ways to behave and think! Take advantage of these special times together to talk with your children; find out what they think and feel and show them (by your example!) those beliefs and behaviors you value most! You may be surprised how quickly they respond to your efforts!
