Gift of Discipline Workshop: Week 8

Today's class began with this video that I was able to find fairly easily on youtube. It starts out fairly innocently and ends up down right disturbing. The point here is that children mimic us. The best way to encourage proper behaviour is to model it ourselves (and vice versa).

Obviously I'm not showing William how to beat people or smoke cigarettes, but since I've had a cold this past week, William has started ripping off pieces of toilet paper, blowing into them, then crumpling them into a ball.

How many times have you seen people do the stuff in the video? If you beat up on your spouse, will you watch this utube? I'm not sure I like the fact that the man and his son yell at an Asian in a laundry to go back where they came from. It's the image of the Asian in the laundry I find to be racial profiling.

I have seen people continually talk on their cell phones while walking their eight to ten year olds though. If only they knew how fast time would pass.
Mind you I bet they talk on their cell phones to their kids while doing something else.

The video is upsetting but William and blowing his nose is adorable. I'm glad you posted the William story it made me smile.
