Intentional Parenting, Part 5

I was away from Tuesday to Saturday last week, so am going to continue the series this week with parenting thoughts from other writers. Here's a classic:
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight
If children live with ridicule, they learn to be shy
If children live with tolerance, they learn to be patient
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence
If children live with praise, they learn to appreciate
If children live with fairness, they learn justice
If children live with security, they learn faith
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves
If children live with acceptance and friendship, they learn to find love in the world
by Dorothy Law Nolte 
 This begs the question, what are our children learning to live with? What are we teaching them through our words and actions? What are we modeling for them?
