I'm Watching You

I

We as a parent influence our children by our actions. Children easily learn from the things we do, and are influenced by our thoughts. We should do things accordingly as we are the role model of our children.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals. 

 When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the  special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer, and  I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of your time  and money to help people who had nothing and I learned that those  who have something should give to those who don't. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me good night and I felt loved and safe. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it and I learned we have to take care of what we are given. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw how you handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't feel good and I learned  that I would have to be responsible when I grow up. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up. 

When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked at you and wanted
To say, "Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't
looking."

So the next time you think your child was not looking when you did something, think again. Each of us, parent or friend, influences the life of a child by our thoughts, words and actions. You may be surprised at the number of things your child can observe and absorb, so think before you act.

How we wish our children would do what we say rather than end up doing what we do.We should practice what we preach only then we will have been good parents.
