I just want to share what I've read in a book called Chicken soup for the soul by Jacky canfield and Mark Hansen It is really worth it! :D Children Learn What They Live If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with honestly, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive. If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves. If children live with ridicule, they learn to be shy. If children live with jealousy, they learn what envy is. If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty. If children live with tolerance, they learn to be patient. If children live with encouragement, they learn to be confident. If children live with praise, they learn to appreciate. If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves. If children live with acceptance, they learn to find love in the world. If children live with recognition, they learn to have a goal. If children live with sharing, they learn to be generous. If children live with honesty and fairness, they learn what truth and justice are. If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those around them. If children live with friendliness, they learn that the world is a nice place in which to live. If children live with serenity, they learn to have peace of mind. With what are your children living? Dorothy L Nolte

one of my personal favorite quote about parent and child was " Do not promise a child something and cant give it because on that they on the child learns how to lie".

I agree. Children can hold on to what you've promise. If it was not given to them, this is how he or she will learn to lie and be angry to you in good time. Cheers Leinrix! ;)
