Be vulnerable, be open, be transparent because cats, what that's going to teach your kids. That's going to teach them it's okay. My kids have seen me cry. My kids have heard me say, mommy, is frustrated today. Mommy is angry today so that they know how to properly express those emotions. And they will know when they get older and they have kids that they don't have to hide their emotions. They don't have to pretend like they're the perfect mom or the perfect dad and don't get angry or sad. They are able to express those because they seen me do it. So that is something that has helped me so much. And I have to consistently practice it because it wasn't done with me. When I was growing up, I have to consistently practice. I remember cherry. Sometimes you need to let them see you and hear you expressing your emotions in a positive way so that they know, Hey, it's okay to cry.

It's okay. To be sad. It's okay to be happy. It's okay to show yourself some love to speak positively to yourself as well as to your children. So don't forget about yourself when you're speaking those positive words and uplifting words to your kids, do it for yourself as well. Because if you're not, they're going to notice that they're going to say, okay, mommy is always telling me all these good things and saying all these wonderful things, but what about herself? She isn't, or as a dad, he is never saying anything positive about him. So, so that is a great way of expressing yourself, expressing your emotions in a positive way, by being, just being a great example. We so often think, let me take care of the kids. Let me make sure they're doing, let me make sure they're going. Let me make sure they have, but we forget that we are living examples as parents to our children.

So if they see us saying negative things to ourselves or positive things to them, they're confused. So like why mommy? And they may say something, cause y'all know, kids are honest where they may not say anything. They may just be like, Oh, that's weird that mommy does that. And then they may grow up and do the same thing talking negatively to themselves, but praising their kids. So we want to make sure we are being a positive example, whether we need to take a time out, whether we need to say, okay, let me calm down. Okay. And sit and talk with my kids and let them know my expectations. Well, we really have to sit and be able to self assess. It's so important for us to be able to self assess ourselves as parents, as people to know that we can be a healthy and positive example for our children.
