My lovely friends,

I love this quote.

It’s something you quickly discover as a parent. You can preach whatever you want, but your child is going to copy your example.

We don’t eat on the bed!!

That works for as long as your charming offspring doesn’t see you break your own bed and indulge in the munchies while being vertical on the bed chewing and staring at a screen.

So…

If you really want to influence people’s behavior show them the behavior you want to see.

And if you do use words you will notice your words become much more powerful once you walk the talk.

When you yourself eat lots of sugar telling someone else to not eat sugar will not have much of an effect.

But when you really don’t eat sugar and THEN explain to people why you think it’s good to cut out sugar it will have a much deeper impact.

As always, much love,

William
