“Parents are the ultimate role models for children. Every word, movement and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent.” —Bob Keeshan.
A DETERMINED MOTHER?
I wonder if the woman in the above scenario realizes that she has placed a physical barrier between herself and her youngster as she totally commits herself to her texting duties.
The youngster has probably experienced this routine before and gives his mother that “oh brother” look of disgust. Even children have their limits of frustration.
The mother stopped and texted for over ten minutes. The child sat quietly in the stroller hidden behind all that essential junk his mother placed there.
Some concerned parents never do get the message.
