Becoming a Great Role Model for Your Children


Yesterday we focused a bit on the 10 Rules for a Happy Marriage. Today, I wanted to take a moment to focus on the relationship and interaction of women and children. As some of you know, I enjoy posting daily inspiration on the community Facebook page but once in a while I decide to expand upon it further-today is one of those days so I apologize for the repeat if you popped over from that page.

This is actually a gentle reminder for ALL women. If you're a mom, this is one of the most important pieces of advice ever! Children do not do as we  say, they do as we DO. For the ladies who are not yet mothers (like myself), start working today towards being the role model that you want your children to model themselves after one day, and you'll become a better person and more classy woman in the process! :)

Now I want to hear from YOU! What is the best advice that you were ever given as a mom? Maybe you have some advice for the new moms out there or future moms?


I'll see you here tomorrow! I'm excited to share our very first Fashion Friday post with you!

  2. I've been a stay at home mom for about 29 years and I consider myself very fortunate that I was able to make the choice to stay home with my children. I have four children 3 girls and a boy. The best advice that I can give to women, is to embrace your role as a woman and whatever you do in life or as a parent... to give it your all, which means 100%.

    Our experience (my husband and I) to having raised 4 successful, kind, and honest children is not only the example we've set as parents, but good communication and guidance. Babies come into this world with their own personalities, but it's up to us as parents, teachers, family and society to help to mold them and teach them to become caring, honest, intelligent human beings and to be an asset to society.

    1. Thank you for sharing, Mesuki! I think it's awesome that you were able to stay at home with your 4 children. :)I agree with you-good communication and guidance cannot be overlooked. I was fortunate to have had that kind of relationship with my parents and I think it worked out well for everyone involved.
