What are you about?

Posted on December 10, 2012


When you are a teacher (and a parent as well), little eyes are always looking at you to see what you’re really about. 

You can tell your students and your children to be nice to others, to work hard, to be honest, etc. but kids are smart. They know that what you say isn’t anywhere near the truth. They know that your lectures mean shit. They know that the real truth is in how you act and they watch you to find out how they should act, too.

Grown-up people aren’t that different from children. You may think no one’s paying attention to you, but I guarantee that they are. People always want to know what you’re really about and many times, even adults will watch you to see how they should act. Your actions have way more power than you probably realize.
