Children would learn what they see and not what we preach themChildren have a tender mind and soft body. We love our children and preach them many things as how to behave with others, how to welcome a guest, how to talk to our elders, how to behave in public or in crowd, and many such other things which we feel necessary to learn for their future. Children might do what we tell them to do and to some extent follow us also in these aspects. But at the same time I have observed that they would many times do what they want and also what they have seen others doing. If the elder brother takes some money from the pocket of father without telling which is practically an act of stealing then the younger would be curious and thrilled to see that action and soon would try to mimic it. It is natural human tendency to copy bad things and vices quickly but ignore the good things. It is somehow embedded in the character of many people in this world. What is your observation in this regard?
