Parents do the most important 'HOME - work' of all;

Education starts at birth and ends at our death; we are always on a journey of discovery and learning. Formal schooling is an important part of this journey but is only one rather small part of the big picture. Parents have a pivotal role to play in educating their children! For this week's blog I pose a question to parents and invite reply...

"In what ways to parents provide the most valuable 'home' - work for a child?"

Speaking as a parent now, I know that my children learn much about life through the example that my wife and I set for them. These values and 'ways' we have caught from our own families of origin as well as from those we have met along the journey of our lives. 
There are many old and wise sayings which we hear ourselves saying such as 'it isn't what you say but how you say it that counts' ' Two wrongs don't make a right', 'treat others as you would like to be treated yourself' etc.
Which wise sayings do you hear yourself saying in your family?
