This week Jane and I talk about the state of our families and the state of our community. We come at those issues from a different place yet we arrive at the same place at the end of our discussion.
My point during this video is that as parents we used to teach our children their life lessons by the verbal messages we sent. We would tell our kids what is acceptable and what isn’t. We would help them understand that there are rules that we need to live by otherwise we will live in chaos and violence. Is that the type of world that we want to live in? Today we parent our kids much differently. Today our kids learn from us by the messages we don’t send. If we don’t stand up and say what needs to be said–if we are no committal or silent then our children assume that it must be OK otherwise they meaning parents would have said something.
