Happy / Angry

Our actions are largely mirrored by children, whether we like it or not. We have been showing “angry” faces to our son, recently, as he has been really testing his boundaries. Over one morning, he picked up the whiteboard marker and started doodling. Casually, he told me he was drawing an “angry” face. I was taken aback, somehow, that he reflected our actions through art. I, too, casually asked him to draw a “happy” face instead, which he obliged. He added a curve in the drawing. Something for me to reflect upon. As Kai is growing older, we need to be really mindful of out actions, thoughts and deeds, as children are capable of mimicking them. I need to discipline my children with grace.
