modeling, not just for fashion anymore

June 7, 2009 at 5:40 am 1 comment

Anyone that tells you modeling the behaviors you want to see in your children doesn’t work is mistaken. In our experience, children learn by watching and feeling, not by editing out actions and splicing in dialog the parent adds later. If you want your children to be generous, give to them lovingly and willingly every single time it makes sense to do so. If you want your child to say thank you, thank him or her every single time they do something for you or others. That’s it. No prompting, no preaching.
In this video the younger sister (Xi) is basically copying exactly what she sees the older sister (Bella) doing. Even if Bella categorically demands that Xi not copy her, Xi will still do so. Bella is copying what she sees in pop culture. It’s natural.
They are watching and they will be what they see.
