4 manners your children MUST learn from you

18 September 2015, 18:29 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  Children have nowhere else they learn things from in their younger age other than from what they see at home. Sure, there is the odd relative or family gathering they interact with but how they relate to them is mostly how you relate with each other at home. Happy wife, happy home! Happy wife, happy home, happy kids and so happy you (the man); and vice versa when it comes to the husband as well.

When couples are dealing with each other, they forget about the children. You assume that because they are doing their homework they will not hear the banging doors or when you are giving each other silent treatment, they are not uncomfortable. How you relate with each other that is how your child might just end up relating to you because that is what they are learning from you.

Handling disagreements, arguments or confrontation

Silent treatment, when one partner picks on the other, shouting at each other, throwing tantrums; if that is how you do it then do not be surprised when you are called to school. Do not be angry at them because they are doing the same things you are doing. Let your child learn how to deal with arguments the proper way. Teach them how to sit down, listen and talk to the other person (kid) and you will be a happy parent because they will do the same with you.

How marriage works

The morals of marriage are learnt best from parents. We grow but they stick with us. If you are hoping for your child to have an amazing experience with their partner in the future, then take a look at your marriage. Is that what they are seeing in yours or are they getting a negative feedback. What you do to your partner might just be how they treat them as well.

Respect in any relationship they ever have

Not just boy-girl relationship but with any person that they ever encounter. Do you show respect to your partner? What they do? Do you appreciate them or take them for granted? Your child will also take you for granted. So do not be angry at them but reflect on how you treat the father or mother of your child.


If your relationship is fickle and you keep breaking up then getting back together, then your child is learning how not to put too much pressure to themselves when it comes to committing to things. They are learning that when things get hard, are no longer attractive, lose to hold their attention and not interesting, then they can just dump it and look for something else. If homework is hard, don’t do it. If chore is tedious, don’t do it. If saving money and want to eat it today, just go ahead and eat it. No pressure at all.
