Poem -

THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

You may offer a child many lessons...

Their first University always begins at home...

​​​​​​Chances are your child says I forgot what you said...

Anger and frustration begins to set in...

You can turn the volume down on the Television but, if they have eyes that can see they may recall scenes from the show...

Children grow fast and they are your walking billboard...

They are a reflection of what they see, not what they do or don't hear...

​​​​​​When you think they're listening they absorb so much more by seeing...

When you look at your child small or grown...

You know the Apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

Hugs...

As always my lovely, you have absolutely hit the proverbial nail on the head with this piece of work...kids are watching all the time..even without appearing to  and its a bit like trying to teach our kids to speak correctly  and you can bet that one of the first words to come out of their little mouths will be an expletive they will have heard uttered under breath by a frustrated parent believing it was unheard...wrong!!! they always see it so love your poem  as it reflects exactly what happens with our children. Good write hun!

So true...If you want to know more about yourself, look at your child. Your child is just like a mirror. Children tend to look at what you do and try to copy rather than what you say.... Thanks for these beautiful write, Sparrow

Hello Rose...

Children are Great Imitators...

People think that saying do as I say, not as I do holds a lot of clout...

They shouldn't be shocked when they hear I learned it from you...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hello Greg...

The eggs takes a butt to sit on them and so probably not?
