#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 3 – Favorite Quote

How Do You Want To Be Treated?
Day 3: Favorite Quote

I have had many "favorite quotes" throughout the years, but one that I always preach to my children, and try to ensure they hold tight to, is inspired by "The Golden Rule"! The Golden Rule, loosely quoted, is:

Do Unto Others, As You'd Have Others, Do Unto You!

So, most days, when I find my children arguing, fighting over a toy or just not getting along; I usually ask them one of the following:

  1. Is that how you want to be treated?
  2. Did you do what you could to be accommodating, or kind?
  3. How would you feel if they did that to you?
Usually I'll get a response that indicates they need to hear my tried and true quote:

ALWAYS, Treat Others, How YOU Want To Be Treated! 

Now, THOSE are words to live by!
