Modeling the behavior we want our children to replicate is certainly an effective way to influence their future behavior, as is giving them plenty of opportunities to draw valuable conclusions for themselves. Younger children are not yet fully molded and in addition, seem to have a natural inclination towards fairness and justice. A perfect combination for planting seeds for future equality growth!
We must therefore nudge them to evaluate their thoughts, what they say and their actions...
"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think."
