Modeling is the act of representing something or the representation of something. To model is to create a representation or model of.
Are you still there?
Now, modeling, when it comes to parenting is the art of presenting to your children those behaviors, habits and deeds that you want them to take up.
A good number of people do not realize how important it is to be the person you want your children to be. The Bible says everything produces after its own kind. Even your hidden traits are likely to come out in your children. Praying for your children is a must, and discipline cannot be overemphasized. As parents, however we have a duty to behave in front of our children.

Do you cuss and swear and expect your children not to do so? Do you smoke like a chimney and think they will not become a smoker just because you said so? Do you bully and beat your spouse and expect your child not to be the schoolroom terror? Do you spend all day watching TV then turn around and call your child lazy? Are you rude to everyone and wonder why your child has a “sass-mouth”?

There are enough challenges out in the world for children, they do not need to have poor examples at home too. Granted, no family is perfect and we all need work. This piece is not meant to condemn anyone but to encourage you to make the necessary changes, your child’s future may depend on it.
