The Huffington Post has printed a wonderful post by North Idaho College instructor Josh Misner, of Post Falls, who publishes the blog, Mindful Dad. Read it through to the end, and you'll learn a valuable lesson re: parents and children:
In Chicago, we marveled at the snowfall on the tarmac. Looking out the window, I joked to my teenage daughter, "Who's going to shovel all that snow off the wings before we take off?" A little part of me inside grew worried by the minute, because I knew that the harder the snow fell, the better the chances were for a delay.Sure enough, our delay came. I refused to let it bother me, as I was intentionally trying to demonstrate patience to both my daughter and 6-year-old son accompanying me on our trip back home. This was a remarkably hard task, considering that, in the last three days, I had acquired a cumulative four hours of sleep/Josh Misner, Mindful Dad. More here.

Question: Are you aware of how closely our children watch our actions?
