Teach Your Children To Sit Still

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! While sitting in a restaurant last week, I saw a family having dinner. The adults were on one side and kids were on another. The kids were standing in the chairs, laughing loud, yelling, and just being plain annoying. I sat and said to myself; “ What disservice they’re doing to their kids”. I would really like to see parents practice how to behave in a public restaurant at home with their kids before they bring them out. This is the perfect time teach your kids how to sit still and talk quietly while you enjoy your meal. This helps by teaching kids not to act on impulse. It helps them to learn self control, which they will need for the rest of their lives. Let’s give our children a better start in life by giving them the simple tools needed for self-control.
